When Abriel's former husband ships her back to her father like faulty merchandise, Abriel decides to cast off her husband's god and start her new life with a new patron god. Never mind that adage about renounced gods sometimes coming back for vengeance. She swears allegiance to Verit, the god of Truth, and when he challenges her to become a warrior, she accepts. And although she returns from training able to swing a sword well enough to defeat her teacher, she has problems that no mortal weapon can vanquish.
In an age-old contest among the gods for the celestial throne, Abriel is now Verit's chosen game piece. A divine contest requires divine stakes, and in order for Verit even to be able to compete, Abriel must become nothing short of a living legend. And nothing forges a legend quite as well as adversity. Therefore, when a hurricane threatens, Verit pushes it in her direction. When Abriel's old god betrays her, Verit takes no action. And when another deity challenges Abriel to a series of arena battles, Verit watches with greedy interest. For if she can defeat a god, he will have his legend.
However, if she is able to defeat a god, then are the gods truly divine? Or will she be able to claim divinity, herself?
It's a fantasy (obviously). No agent yet, but a few agents have either chapters or the whole book, and I'm still waiting to hear back from them. Wish me luck!
