Sadly, Jay died of cancer in 2014, but the publisher believes he would be very proud of the presentation of this book. "It is a powerful tale of political intrigue, divine mystery, and swashbuckling naval battles. Graced with splashes of humor, this novel is full of cliffhangers that will keep you turning pages. Sian Kattë is a successful middle-aged businesswoman in the tropical island nation of Alizar. Her life seems comfortable and well-arranged. . . until a violent encounter one evening leaves her with an unwanted magical power. Arian des Chances is the wife of Alizar’s ruler, with vast wealth and political influence. Yet for all her resources, she can only watch helplessly as her son draws nearer to death. When crisis thrusts these two women together, they learn some surprising truths: about themselves, their loved ones, and Alizar itself. Because beneath a seemingly calm façade, Alizar’s people -- and a dead god --are stirring. . . ."
