The Daughter of The Ice (Age of Rekindling, #1) by Luís Falcão de Magalhães
After a thousand-year slumber, she is ready to blanket Elessia in icy death.
The Daughter, ancient elemental goddess and custodian of the dead, rises after a thousand years of slumber, her power unmatched and her wrath unbridled.
Her awakening brings a time of turmoil to all of Elessia, with the City-States of the North as the first to face her fury. At the forefront of her army stand the Children of The Ice and their undead minions.
Eregar, a decorated knight living out his twilight years in relative peace, is tasked with leading a band of young mercenaries into the heart of the Frozen Plains to appraise the threat. But as they venture deeper into the icy wasteland, they will find The Daughter’s machinations in full swing and be forced to act before it is too late.
Will Eregar and his young allies be able to defend the North from the sorceress’s nightmarish armies, break the curse she casts upon them, and end the rise of The Daughter of The Ice? Or will they fall before the might of the icy goddess?
