The Scrolls of Cachaen.
Remembered only as legend, these writings gathered by an obscure sect of wizards were hidden because of the destructive forces they can unleash from the netherworld. Lost for eight millennia, the resting place of the scrolls is accidentally discovered by Xavier D’Shagre. Wounded and dying, the sorcerer seeks to possess the writings to restore his waning magic. Revenge fires his hatred, lit by Morgan Saint-Evanston, the assassin who murdered Xavier’s beloved wife, Nisidia.
Xavier vows he will not rest until Morgan is dead.
The sorcerer’s search for the scrolls is discovered by an unlikely source: Julienne Blackthorne. Believed dead, her body was tossed into a charnel room. Alive amongst the reek of cattle dead, she seeks to escape her hellish incarceration. Time is against her, for she carries the embryo of a vampiric daemon that will consume her from within if it is not fed human blood. Julienne must escape Xavier’s dungeons and find Morgan soon—her last hope for survival in the nightmarish realm of Sclyd.
NOTE: Previously released as The Price of Eternity. I do not recommend you buy the Samhain versions. These new editions have been re-written and re-edited.
