The Dead God's Shadow
Everybody accepts the Dead God’s embrace eventually.
The True Gods murdered their brother Omar at the end of the Dragon Wars. They believed he was gone, but now, five centuries later, Omar has returned.
Grief-stricken, Avril has left Peak City and Lord Obdurin’s schemes behind. He’s looking for his cadre and wants nothing to do with the Gods, their Chosen, or their wars, but Avril is inextricably linked to the Gods, and they are not done with him yet. Avril travels to Lancity where he hopes to find Kelly, but the Dead God’s priests are waiting for him, and Avril might be just what Omar needs to take his revenge against the True Gods.
The Dead God’s Shadow is the third book in The Bastard Cadre series and continues where The Godslayers’ Legacy ended.
