A chilling, thrilling read!
Servant of the Gods delivers a spine tingling read!
10/21/11 through 10/31/11 – Valerie Douglas has released her newest book – Servant of the Gods. The amazing story follows a woman with three names, each that she picks up at various stages in her life. Love, romance, betrayal, treachery, action, horror and a thrilling ride, this is a solidly conceived, well-plotted book that leaves you aching and begging for more, and lets you become her companion throughout the life that she leads.
A rollercoaster ride that takes us into the world of a priestess of Isis, this factually effective and creatively conceived novel is unmissable.
Servant of the Gods – A child of prophecy, in her life she would bear three names, the one she bore as a peasant and a mercenary and another after she was captured and enslaved. Despite it all, she would rise to become Priestess of Isis and High Priestess of all Egypt and face her greatest challenge…an ancient, nearly immortal evil.
Valerie Douglas is a prolific writer and genre-crosser, much to the delight of her fans. A fan of authors of almost every genre from Isaac Asimov to Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, she writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and as V.J. Devereaux, erotic romance.
Egypt, 17th Year of King Narmer’s Reign, Early Dynasty
Torchlight flickered over the stone walls of the immense cavern, bathing them in a soft golden glow. That light danced over the massive figures of the Gods, giving the faces of the statues the appearance of expression. It illuminated as well the faces of the priests and priestesses gathered around the stone pedestal that served as an altar. The air was pungent with the scent of burning incense. Chanting echoed throughout the chambers, a sound that rose and fell, a low atonal hum that resonated in the bones.
Mummification had never been intended for use on the living but it was as it must be and none of those gathered there could gainsay what was about to happen. Not General Khai, nor any of the priests and priestesses of the Gods, nor even the High Priestess Irisi herself. Who were they to second-guess the Will of the Gods?
Irisi could not and would not.
It was as the prophecy had decreed however much they wished to deny it. Kahotep’s prophecy, he who was High Priest of Horus, the Falcon-God whose Eye saw everything.
“A darkness rises, oh Pharaoh, to be unleashed across the world. It comes as a shadow rising from the desert laying waste to all of Egypt, scouring the earth as it passes. Death and destruction follow in its wake, and the cries of the people of the world are terrible. From the north comes a warrior, a crowned and golden servant of the Gods with eyes like the sky, bearing swords in hand to rise up and drive the terrible darkness out of the world, and to stand against it for all time.”
That shadow had risen and the battles had been terrible. Now they had a chance, one chance, to end it.
Servant of the Gods is available from Smashwords, Amazon and all other ebook retailers and is the prequel to the ground-breaking book Heart of the Gods, from the Servant of the Gods series.
