Kingdom of the Serpent, Book 2
by Mark Chadbourn
But the keys are people—one with the power of creation, one the power of destruction—and they are hidden somewhere among the world's billions. As the search fans out across the globe, ancient powers begin to stir. In the bleak north, in Egypt, in Greece, in all the Great Dominions, the old gods are returning to stake their claim. The odds appear insurmountable, the need desperate.... This is a time for heroes.
