Night Rising – The War Begins
The quest is over and now the war for Zeus’s throne will begin in Night Rising the fourth Mantle of the Gods novel by Tricia Sparks. A major victory has been won, but one battle does not make a war. Sam Abrams and Annalynn Gallagher now stand at the edge of failure. With opposing forces converging on Zeus’s crown, and the efforts of the only deity who seems to share Sam and Anna’s goal foiled, one shadowy figure prepares to make her move while another begins to stir.
Haunted by the spirit of an ancient god, Detective Lance Roman returns to Los Angeles with the sword of war in hand, and Catharine Nichols at his side. Yet they have not left their struggles behind them. Still in danger of becoming a pawn in evil’s elaborate game, Catharine must rely on Lance. As a wielder of the war god’s mantle, Lance must make a choice in order to protect the woman he loves – a choice with far-reaching consequences.
