Description
Knowledgeable Sin of Gluttony has always remained loyal to the underworld of Golveviion: named the right-hand demon to the King, Jignasa was feared throughout the rings and known to be a merciless soul collector. Dealing with the Dukes of Golveviion and the other demons of the land, Jignasa helps strike terror into all souls--all for the sake of the Devil. But after a confusing and bloody encounter with an imp, Jignasa discovered that parts of her memory had been wiped. With her reputation on the line, Jignasa searches for a way to discover what she has lost--and why she lost it in the first place. Yet when the threat of rebellion and an unlikely escape leaves Jignasa stranded in another world--the Otherworld--she finds that her memories play a much larger role in a prophecy. It is the lost memories that hold the power to destroy everything she knows. What's worse, she isn't alone. A mute, human boy shares the same fate as her, and it seems that every being--Angel or demon--is looking to collect his power to destroy one another. Exploring the new world and protecting the key to the universe, Jignasa searches for a way to re-establish her standing as a demon while learning the truth behind her life, and potentially begin the destruction of it all.
About the author
Shaylee Gibbs started the concept of this book when she was in eighth grade, but didn't have the courage to write it until she took a novel writing class her freshman year of college. Beginning as a comforting story to tell herself, the lands of Golveviion, Ravi, and the Otherworld were fleshed out with the guidance of her professors, family, and friends--something she will forever be grateful for. After graduating from college and taking up a journalism job, Shaylee looks forward to owning a log cabin in the mountains, where she'll write her other stand-alone novels with her cats and a never-ending cup of coffee.
