DAGGER AND SCYTHE: The Ichorian Epics by Emilie Knight / Dark Fantasy / Released Dec 2019
Dagger and Scythe spent good decades together, stalking human prey at night, and taking out the targets the god Maniodes deems worthy. With one hundred years under her belt, Scythe is comfortable in her ways, and takes incredible enjoyment of her skills. Dagger may be new to the undead order, but he’s relishing in the work. The two of them together set beautiful bonfires, with the occasional corpse inside that fire. When they enjoy each other’s time a little too much, and an entire village burns down because of it, Maniodes becomes sick of their rogue behavior. Regular punishments haven’t worked on either of them, so he tries something new: marrying them to each other. To keep each other in line or they’ll both end up properly dead. Both have grown tired of the god’s odd punishments and lazy control, taking over his throne and the land of the dead should fix things. Her scythe is perfectly curved for slicing.His dagger, made of folded steel, is ready to strike.But are they strong enough to take on gods?
