Tale Three of Immortal Beings

"A vibrant, elucidating LGBTQ+ fantasy." -Kirkus (Starred Review)

An immortal who can’t remember the past and a god who wants to forget it…

An Ning wakes in a male body with no memories. When she uses her immortal magic to feed refugees, they worship her as a god and call her Peace Bringer. Yet peace eludes An Ning.
