After a fierce struggle that unseated the Azura Lord of Death and elevated Serjana Caelum’s best friend, Kyle, to his role, the realms of existence appear peaceful, and the balance between good and evil—which Sera is sworn to protect—has been restored.

But a new threat to humankind has already begun: a scourge of demons has been invading the Mortal Realm, and no one can find the portal they’re using. In response, the gods of Illysia send Kira, the living incarnation of Kali, goddess of destruction.

Stunning and dangerous, Kira plans to protect the heavens at all cost, even if it means destroying all of humanity to do so. Soon Sera and Kyle find themselves not only fighting the demon plague, but racing against Kira to save the Mortal Realm. But when an even more sinister threat arises—putting not just the human world but all planes of existence in jeopardy—they must all learn to work together or lose everything they sacrificed so much to save.

Exclusive Content: An Excerpt from Dark Goddess


Demons were festering in the Mortal Realm.

No matter how hard they attempted to hide their disguises—human, animal, or otherwise—the Goddess of Destruction could see the rakshasas plain as day, scattered like black poisonous dust, tainting the very air around them. They lurked in any dark hole they could find.


The goddess frowned. Size was immaterial. Small demons were as clever and insidious as their larger counterparts. At times, even more so. Even now, she could foresee the black dust multiplying, paving the path for something monstrous . . . a plague that would only spread if left unimpeded.

Lord Devendra had been wise to forestall the end of the world by banishing the Kali rakshasa months before, with the help of his consort Lady Serjana and their mutual ally Kalias. But the truth was, the fate of man had been sealed the minute the binding wards of the Mortal Realm had been breached by Ra’al, the Demon Lord of the seventh level of hell. The gates of Xibalba had been opened, its very stench seeping through its seams and into the human world.

The goddess’s third eye slid shut; she contemplated what she’d seen.

It was too late.

The Mortal Realm had to be cleansed. It had to be destroyed.
