The world of Avern has moved on. It has been almost a thousand years since the day the entire pantheon disappeared. Since the Abandonment, the mortals have learned to live without gods and goddesses. The world became mundane with little magic, and even less hope. Tyrants have risen, and those able to wield what is left of magic are powerful. Forces surge in the darkness that threaten to topple the already fragile world. The plight of the world of Avern is not unknown, however, and those that watch from a distance have decided to intervene. The mortals are sleeping, however, unknowing that two great powers will soon by vying for control.Then something happens that changes things. A young princess makes a bid for power by murdering her father. She then attempts to murder her sister, the crown princess of Lineria, Keiara. Despite a true strike, aided by dark powers, Keiara doesn’t die. Instead, the strike pierces the barrier between her human soul and the soul sleeping within her, the soul of the Dark Phoenix. More than a goddess, the Dark Phoenix is the legendary mother of the gods. She is a part of the Eternal Phoenix that brought life to their world eons ago, one of the primal forces of the cosmos.

About the Author

Beverly L. Anderson started writing at the age of eleven, and when she did it was obvious she wasn't going to stick to the every day. Her first story, written in a series of spiral notebooks, was about a kidnapping. There's no surprise that these days, she favors the dark corners of the psyche over the happy and fluffy parts. To better understand the mind of her characters, Beverly specialized in psychology and counseling in school, and holds a master's degree in the latter.

Beverly's other hobbies include gaming of all types, transgender and autism advocacy, and writing fanfiction. Her interest in the BDSM community began as simple curiosity, but has led her to the road to finding a place for herself there as a Domme. She herself has gone on the journey of self-discovery in the last few years, finally pinning down her identity after nearly thirty years of searching. Coming out as bigender, pansexual, and polyamorus was one of the hardest things she's ever done, but it gave her the confidence to become herself even more. An autistic person, and an eclectic pagan, Beverly finds herself at odds with a lot of what society calls "normal".
