||From Winter\'s Ashes
By Patrick Rochefort and Keith Aksland
A Detective with nothing left to lose, against a Necromancer with the world to
In a world where everyone wields magic, stopping necromantic crimes requires detectives who can solve mysteries and crack skulls.
Detective Heather Blackthorne’s victory over a necromantic cult was short-lived. The lone survivor of the cult butchered her husband and son in front of her eyes, so she would be forced to watch him steal their bones. She thought it was the worst moment of her life. She was wrong.
It\'s a year later, and her life is still shattered, her career is in ruins, and her last shot at redemption has gone wrong. Heather is sent in disgrace to the high North by the Church she serves. What peace is to be found in that quiet arctic outpost is all too quickly broken, as her past comes hunting for far more than her, this time.
Overwhelmed by grief and outgunned by a necromantic conspiracy, Heather must fight for the survival of those around her, while searching for a reason to survive.
And in the end, she\'ll have to decide: Does the necromancer who butchered her husband and son deserve a Detective\'s justice, or a mother\'s revenge?
A webfiction serial, published weekly, From Winter’s Ashes offers a rich world where emotion fuels magic and great spirits walk the earth, all while telling the human tale of one mother’s struggle to put her family to rest.
