Can a drowning world withstand the tides of change
that threaten to pull them all under?
In a universe inhabited by gods, freemen, and slaves, life is especially cruel & harsh. But things only go downhill when Lauranya and her daughter Ari find themselves abandoned on a planet where the fast rising tide will force them to higher ground. The only problem; the highlands are populated with a dizzying array of nightmarish creatures.
Left for dead, Lauranya and her daughter, Ari, struggle to survive on this bleak world. Even beyond the rising tide, and carnivorous fauna, the Drowning Planet is home to dozens of former rebels; all of which would enjoy seeing them both dead.
Meanwhile, in the skies above, gods and ethereal beings battle for possession of Ari’s powers. As a necromancer, her growing abilities allow her to blur the line between life and death in ways that make her a valuable commodity, even to the gods themselves.
Drowning World is the first book in the Siren series, and the second novel from author S.R. Ruark. Known for her vivid manner of storytelling, Ruark never disappoints.
