Description

The first epic fantasy from David R. Slayton, author of the Adam Binder series, Dark Moon, Shallow Sea is a powerful story of divine betrayal, ghosts, and mystery, perfect for fans of Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson.

Raef seeks revenge on the knights of the sun god for murdering his goddess, the moon. Her death stopped the tides, darkened the night sky, and left the shades of the dead without a path to the underworld. Now they rise each night in a blood-hungry mist that threatens to overwhelm the living.

So Raef sneaks into the crypt of the sun god’s temple, expecting to steal some bones or jewels, but instead encounters a coffin containing a living man, Kinos, who is fast asleep. Unable to discern his importance, but obsessed with the mystery of it, Raef steals Kinos.

As they run from the knights—and grow closer—Raef starts to believe he’s finally found a friend, lover, and perhaps a secret that will lead to his goddess’s return. But if they can’t solve the mystery of Kinos’s imprisonment soon, the moon will never rise and the world will drown in ghosts.

David R. Slayton

David R. Slayton grew up in Guthrie, Oklahoma, where finding fantasy novels was pretty challenging and finding fantasy novels with diverse characters was downright impossible.

In 2015, David founded Trick or Read, an annual initiative to give out books along with candy to children on Halloween as well as uplift lesser-known authors or those from marginalized backgrounds.
