The Heartstone Thief
"Fear has no place in my heart and neither do you."
Curtis Vance went looking for death but death found him, in the form of an insane and alluring sorceress. She speaks of magic and lost cities, as though those things exist. But Vance is no fool. He'll use the sorceress to find her mythical gem and sell it to the highest bidder. All he has to do is survive her…
He didn't expect the sorceress's stories of magic and monsters to be true.
He didn't expect to fall for her in ways that terrifying him.
But most of all, he didn't expect to find himself trapped between the devastating power of a forgotten relic and his duty to save a people who would see him burned alive for his crimes.
Curtis Vance went looking for death, but she found him. And she has no intention of letting him go.
"She is the whisper in the wind, the rise of the ocean wave, the stirring beneath still waters. She is the beginning of the end, and I cannot stop her."
