She takes on a mission to save her friend from the clutches of a sociopathic elf bent on taking ultimate power, but is pushed into the role of an avenging goddess on the fast track to become the Creator’s new wife. The only way she can save both her friend and the world is to murder the Creator’s current wife, keeping the goddess’s power from the clutches of the elf. The price? Being trapped in a loveless marriage for the rest of eternity to a god who may at any time replace her in the same way he wishes her to replace his current wife. Opposed by both the mad elf and the entire human cult to the goddess, Serazia must decide what makes life worth living.
