Oops…We’ve Had A Mishap…

Something very bad has happened at Trinity Gateways LLC, and now we find that our website was not only down, the site build files have been lost.  So, to make a long and convoluted story very short…

We Are Under Construction

Please bear with us as we work to reconstruct the site build files and restore the site.  Since we have to do all this work anyway, we’ll be making some changes to the original site layout.  This is going to take some time, but we will be “re-loading” portions of the site as they are finished so please check back.

Thank you for your patience and continued support.  :-)

DID 5 - His Revenge

Descent Into Darkness, Part 5: His Revenge by Doris Ross


The Mancers’ Guild House has fallen. Jevanel lies in ruins. In the aftermath of destruction, the Mancers struggle to rebuild their numbers while the Monster of Menie schemes.

Though Ba’tvian Delthanurk hunts them, Mancers must still heed their sworn duties. Responding to a call from the Rathburn Watch, one of their number returns to the city he once called home. A murderer is stalking the city of Rathurn, leaving mutilated bodies in his decade-long wake. The Watch suspect a local; the Mancer Veln Greenmeadow suspects a blood mage.

As Veln searches for the truth in Rathburn, Absol Omine prepares his people as best he can. Time is running out as Ba’tvian and his Shadowed Ones close in on Destiny’s Way. Absol’s hope lies in the boy he’s raised, one whose power may be equal to the blood mage Delthanurk’s. While the Mancers plan, the elven lady Nerisse se li Astorae enacts a scheme of her lord’s making. Every step she takes is haunted by what she’s done. As she tries to separate the madness she fears from the reality around her, Nerisse struggles for reprieve.

One will lose all sense of self. Another will perish in failure. And the Monster of Menie will lay the foundation of new future.

A conflict is coming. By the end of it, fire will scour the blood-soaked earth.

“You!” A shrill voice hissed as Cybele spun around to flee. The girl jumped back, startled at the sight of a hooded figure standing before her. The person laughed as they uncovered their head. “So, the little bird has escaped her gilded cage after all. How dare you!”

Chapter 1


Sam stepped out of the bathroom and back into the main room of their hotel. His mind free of turmoil, it was time to discuss their next move.

“You okay?” Anna asked as he reemerged.

“Yeah, I just needed a minute to clear my head,” he assured her.

“What’s our next move?” She asked as he reached her side. Rather than answer her, he drew her into his arms and held her close for a moment, brushing her forehead with a light kiss. When he drew back, his eyes locked with hazel ones that had turned gray.

“Are you okay?” he asked seeing her fear.

“Yeah, I just went a round with Ares,” she muttered.

At the words Sam let her go and looked her over for injury. “What happened?”

“It wasn’t like that. He’s just taunting me. Making it pretty clear that despite whatever deal he made with Lance, he has designs for Catharine still.” Anna explained.

“Yeah I’m not surprised there; I figured that a deal made with a fallen wouldn’t end well,” Sam grumbled.

“What are we going to do?” Anna asked.

“We’ll deal with Lance in a minute, first we need to get people on their way and figure out what we can do to stop these four want-to-be gods from jump starting the apocalypse,” Sam whispered.

Anna nodded her understanding as Sam drew her back to his side. He watched as the others in the room moved away from each other and in his direction, all but Lance, he stayed at Catharine’s side. That was just fine by Sam, he didn’t want Ares privy to whatever plans they set in motion.

“All right yank quiet times over, what are we gonna do?” Terra demanded, her green eyes sharp and cold.

Anna pulled the phone away from her ear and held it in stunned silence for a moment until she felt Sam’s hand squeeze her own. She blinked then looked over at him. “What’s wrong?”

“Apparently there’s more than one way to get inside that door at Atlantis.”

“Another way to enter hell,” Sam muttered with disgust.
