Hi you wonderful peeps!
I present to you my very first WIP.
The story is set in the medieval world of Slavic mythology, where the gods are on the brick of extinction, people are losing faith and pretty monsters are lurking in the dark.
You are one of the people, cursed with Morana’s magic, which gives you power over both winter and death. You can imagine that being one of the White Deaths hasn’t exactly made you the beacon of hope or the icon of popularity among your people.
Worse yet, some of your magic has been sealed, making it impossible to witch away the inquisition.
In short: meet gods, fight kudlaks and get back your power (maybe fall in love along the way?).
