Master of Death
(Set in ancient China)
Isis is a young woman with a skill for killing and other... unusual talents. One night, after assassinating a guest at her friend's inn, she meets a masked man of the darkest eyes and palest skin. Someone she knows is different. His name is Thanatos, and it isn't long before she discovers his secret; he is the god of death.
With a war raging in the Heavens and catastrophe raining on earth under the rule of Emperor Shin, Isis sets out to escape servants of the sun god and discover what she really is. Of course, Thanatos has no intention of letting her run headlong into danger on her own. The two embark on a journey to stop the war, forging a bond that will be tested by cruel and beautiful fate. But with a sinister darkness rising within Thanatos, and unfathomable magic awakening within Isis, the two will have to fight together like no one has ever witnessed before. Not even the gods.
Everyone wants power, and they will get their hands on it by whatever means necessary.
