The Daedal Pit: Sister Seekers 3

A Polyamorous Dark Epic Fantasy

by A.S. Etaski

The Conceiver wants to ruin me for the Sisterhood. I can't let this happen.

I stumbled into a place I wasn't supposed to be. Priestess Wilsira isn't angry. She merely demands penance at her side, only too delighted to wreck my Elder's plans for me.

Serving her and her demon-blooded son, I’m caught in a cascade of revelations. I begin to understand the real powers which govern out city, consuming most of us eventually.

Will I fall prey to city's worst monstrosities like so many fighters before me? Or can my private battle gain an edge for the Sisterhood when the sweeping chain of events finally reaches its end?

In The Daedal Pit, intrigue and horror, action and drama weave Etaski's third act of the Spider Queen's web into a consummation of promise. Fulfilling that promise catapults one determined survivor to a place she once could see only in her dreams.

Sister Seekers is dark epic fantasy for adults with an ever-broadening scope. Found Family is a core theme throughout the saga. Perfect for fans of entwined plots, challenging themes, elements of erotic horror, and immersive worldbuilding. Sexuality and inner conflict play into the character growth with nuance, intrigue, action, and fantastical magic. The series begins underground with an isolated race of Dark Elves whose intricate webs first ensnare then catapult us to places a Red Sister can only imagine in her dreams.

Excerpt:

D’Shea smiled calmly at me.  "It is not your place to demand your answers before I get mine, Red Sister.  This is your only warning."

I quivered with that old, habitual sense of threat, of secrecy, when I could not speak of what Jilrina was doing if I tried.  It was ridiculous to think I could squeeze information or distract my Elder from this, yet I was tempted.

I glanced at Reishel, though I didn’t know why or what I sought.

"You’re my Sister," she said in reassurance.  "Our Elder has been watching my family, too.  She has good reason to choose and protect us.  Tell her.  Tell us.  Speaking it will lift some weight, helping us all succeed."

If by succeeding, she meant surviving.

"Nothing which has defined your life began with you, Sirana," D’Shea said.  "Too many Nobles choose to think so, and that is why they are so easy to control.  I must know the real reason Jilrina died.  You are capable of speaking it now, and you will."

Reviews:Eris Adderly on GoodReads wrote:

The Daedal Pit is a pulse-quickening crescendo to the end of a brilliant first act in the Sister Seekers series. The ending left the hairs on my arms standing for the exciting and expansive way the book promises a segue into the next (and even larger, richer) part of the epic. The word-building in this series is fractally detailed: the closer you examine it, the more details you keep finding.

These are books that you will 100% want to re-read after you've completed the series once, all the way through, just so you can pick up all the hidden gems of foreshadowing, the web of connections you were too excited to notice the first time. I'm excited for each new release in this series; it's like an event. I bow to the master.
