Eve of Snows by L James Rice.
On the Cover.
Prayers hold the power of magic, and Eliles is the most accomplished postulant to study for the priesthood in generations. But her prayers are a lie. She doesn’t channel energy from the gods; she wields unholy feral magic, punishable by death. She hides her secret in the heart of the church, the monastery of Istinjoln. Priests celebrate her prayers in public but mock her behind her back, and all she wants is out.
Eliles plans her escape from the monastery on the upcoming Eve of Snows festival, the day she takes her vows. When her closest friend returns from the frozen wilds draped over his horse, a sealed scroll lashed to his body, she’s drawn into a conspiracy decades in the planning.
Lord Priest Ulrikt intends to open a Celestial Gate to the gods and usurp rule from the clans in a holy war, crowning himself King Priest. However, if the gate reaches the hells instead of the heavens, it unleashes a hoard of Shadows bent on genocide. On the Eve of Snows, come heavens or hells, war will rage.
