The Mountain of Kept Memory
In a world long past the singularity, where the distant past is remembered as a time of gods, where fragments of vastly advanced technology threaten constant disaster, one goddess remains.
When Erest ventures onto the forbidden mountain of the dead gods, he finds himself snared only half-willingly into the service of the last goddess in the world. The Kieba does need help in her endless work of guarding the world from plague and ruin, but does that really have to be him?
Oressa, princess of Carastind, knows what's important in life: avoiding her royal father and keeping track of all the secrets of his court. But when she overhears news about imminent invasion, she is shocked to discover just what her father plans to give away in order to buy peace.
But when the invaders attempt to steal the Kieba's power, both Erest and Oressa must decide where their loyalties actually lie, and what they are willing to risk to protect the goddess, their home, and the world.
