A quest for power. A growing evil. Can a scholar of magic keep an incredible discovery from the forces of chaos?

Wizard and bookworm Athala Dohn pursues her research with a fiery passion. So when she uncovers evidence of an ancient spell buried deep within the city, she won’t rest until she’s the one who makes the find. Determined to outwit potentially-deadly magical protections, Athala brings help: a Conscript, Elise Bresch, and a barbarian, Ragan Ermolt. Together they enter the sewers completely unprepared for what awaits…

With undead skeletons, giant rats, and even a dragon in their path, Athala never expected a set of metal bars to thwart her. But when a corrupt man imprisons and tortures her and her friends, the scholar realizes her curiosity may have unleashed destruction upon all of Neuges. Athala has one chance to escape captivity and claim the spell before the Age of Mortals slips from humanity's grasp.

Ancients is the first book in the Heroes by Necessity saga of sword and sorcery fantasy novels. If you like magical Dungeons and Dragons inspired worlds, multifaceted and diverse characters, and pulse-pounding action, then you’ll love Riley S. Keene’s epic tale.

About the Author

Riley S. Keene is actually the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing duo, also known as Robert and Kristen. They live in the Pacific Northwest and enjoy the rainstorms, lack of sunlight, and excess oxygen that come with living in that part of the US.

Robert is a Pacific Northwest native who has a degree in Applied Mathematics and Computational Sciences. He has a love for video games and a dislike for pretty much everything else. Robert is in charge of writing the first draft for all of our books.

Kristen was born and raised in a town outside of Philadelphia. She has a degree in Multimedia Design and works full-time as a marketer for a Seattle engineering firm. She's a bisexual woman who loves gloomy weather, good books, food made from animals, and spending time with Robert. Kristen is in charge of outlining and editing for all of our books.
