Heroes by Necessity Book One
A quest for power. A growing evil. Can a scholar of magic keep an incredible discovery from the forces of chaos?
Wizard and bookworm Athala Dohn pursues her research with a fiery passion. So when she uncovers evidence of an ancient spell buried deep within the city, she won’t rest until she’s the one who makes the find. Determined to outwit potentially-deadly magical protections, Athala brings help: a Conscript, Elise Bresch, and a barbarian, Ragan Ermolt. Together they enter the sewers completely unprepared for what awaits…
With undead skeletons, giant rats, and even a dragon in their path, Athala never expected a set of metal bars to thwart her. But when a corrupt man imprisons and tortures her and her friends, the scholar realizes her curiosity may have unleashed destruction upon all of Neuges. Athala has one chance to escape captivity and claim the spell before the Age of Mortals slips from humanity's grasp.
Ancients is the first book in the Heroes by Necessity saga of sword and sorcery fantasy novels. If you like magical Dungeons and Dragons inspired worlds, multifaceted and diverse characters, and pulse-pounding action, then you’ll love Riley S. Keene’s epic tale.
