Gritty heroes, blood-soaked promises, and family bonds put to the test. Logan meets The Mandalorian in this "expansive, edgy" tale of love and loss. (Kirkus Reviews)

2018 Next Generation Indie Book Awards novella finalist

Eutau Vidal owed nothing to anyone and lived his life as he wanted. But then his sister died, leaving her newborn son Kira in his care, and everything changed. The Purging sweeps on, spreading misery across the Land of Moenda as the Ascendancy wages its war of extermination against the Deadbringers. Now, torn between a promise to his dying sister and the desire to regain his freedom, Eutau struggles to care for his young nephew even as the babe begins to manifest dark powers of the most dangerous kind.

Will Eutau find meaning in the promise he reluctantly made amid the ashes of war, or will he turn his back on the innocent?

To Nurture & Kill is a standalone prequel to The Deadbringer, the first book in The Ellderet Series.
