Ancients (Heroes by Necessity Book One) - Preview

Hidden far beneath the city of Khule lies a spell of immeasurable power.

Athala Dohn, wizard and scholar, wants that spell.

She’s already spent months researching it and enlisted some help—the barbarian Ermolt and the Conscript Elise—so getting what she wants should be easy, right?

She was prepared for the giant rats, and she assumed there would be animated skeletons. But she didn’t expect to uncover a dragon, or to be carted off to jail.

Ancients is the first book in the epic Heroes by Necessity series, overflowing with rich world-building, diverse characters, and heart-pounding adventure.
