Into the Darkness (Special Edition) - Cathell Series #1
Publisher: Mighty Quill Books
A forgotten darkness imprisoned by the old gods. A sell-sword and a thief seeking release from their demons. The quest that will change them forever.
Aeryn Ravane is a haunted woman. A voice she believes to be her dead father's tells her she can have her sanity back if she finds the legendary sword trapped deep in the heart of the Black Mountains. Desperate, she agrees to take on the curse guarding the sword.
Theo Weldon is an accomplished thief even at her young age. But her latest job, to steal the sword after Aeryn finds it may prove to be beyond her. She'd walk away from this job if her life didn't depend on her succeeding.
When they stumble upon the dark secret hidden within the twisted labyrinth, however, Aeryn and Theo regret they ever heard of the sword. Faced with an unimaginable evil, Aeryn must master the powers of the sword before it destroys her and Theo, and the evil they unleashed destroys all of Cathell.
Fans of Michael J. Sullivan, Joe Abercrobie, and M.L. Spencer will love this dark epic tale. Note: This edition includes the series prequel and other special content.
