MotWR Teaser Alert!

Peep this Mantle of the World Ruler snippet to get you hyped for the book release, set for early 2023: "Sweaty and depleted from the afternoon’s events, Dom desperately needed a shower. Taking a moment, he hastily descended the stairs towards their rental car to collect their luggage. Thankfully, both he and Julia were accustomed to travelling light, this rebirth being no exception. After quietly setting their bags near the foot of the bed and checking that she was still comfortable, he slipped into the bathroom, fresh clothes in hand, for a cold shower. He could kill for a beer right now."
