The rebellious son of a long line of magical cartographers and diviners, Valen has spent most of his life trying to escape what society—and his family—ordained for him.  He despairs when a companion abandons him in a rainy wilderness half dead, addicted to an enchantment that converts pain to pleasure, and possessing only a stolen book of maps.  But when the renegade is granted sanctuary in Gillarine Abbey, his book - rumored to lead men to the realm of angels - admits him to a world of secret societies, doomsayers, monks, and madmen, all seeking to unlock the mystery of a coming dark age.

Flesh and Spirit is available online and in brick-and-mortar stores everywhere.
