Natalin thought that being a champion of the gods was supposed to make things easier.
It turns out, life isn’t that simple.
For centuries, the four gods that rule the land have each chosen a hero, a mage-warrior to act as eyes and hands in the world. Gifted with their Divine’s blessing, these Ascended and their successors have worked through the ages to ensure the land stays at peace.
As the new Tideborn, the disciple of the sea god Efren, Natalin is expected to follow in their footsteps.
Her counterpart Takio finds himself in the same boat, tasked with keeping his volcano goddess patron in check. The demands placed on them are immense, but together with their nations, they’ve managed to keep the peace.
Until the crops and grasslands begin failing, sending Takio’s mountainous nomads careening towards war. Natalin’s shores fall under siege, destroying the seabound trade routes that keep their nations flourishing.
When the very safety of the four champions is threatened by the growing chaos, Natalin and Takio realize the truth - their Divine favor won’t protect them.
And there’s more at play in their ‘peaceful’ world than they’d thought.
