The Watchful Void
The Caelish Order #4
by A.J. Barber
The fate of two worlds hangs in the balance.
Alicia and her friends stand alone against an army of Elaiyu and Hunters. With few resources and fewer allies, they scour Jennifer Green’s research for a revelation that might tip the balance in their favor. But magic is shifting, new problems–and new possibilities–cropping up with each passing day.
As if a rising tide of ancient magic wasn’t enough, Karenna and the rest of the Elaiyu are slowly wasting away, losing strength with every day they spend in the human world. Soliu has captured hundreds of civilians and compelled them to join his army. And so much magic is eroding the walls that contain an ancient, malevolent power.
If Alicia doesn’t find a way to turn the tides of this war soon, there won’t be a city left to save.
A main character (Karenna) identifies as bi/pan and aromantic on-page in book #3 of the series. Other significant characters have been confirmed by the author as bi/pan (Jordan) and sapphic (Alicia).
