Mysterious Galaxy is delighted to have New York Times bestseller R.A. Salvatore back in our orbit for the release of Child of a Mad God, the first in a new series! Aoleyn, a powerful witch born under the Blood Moon, is trapped by her tribe’s barbaric traditions. She dreams of freedom, but her abilities make her a target – not only of the tribe’s warlord, but also of the mountain demon who hunts all who wield the power of the Coven. The Library Journal says of Child of a Mad God, “Fans and new readers alike will be pleased.”

When Aoelyn loses her parents, she is left to fend for herself among a tribe of vicious barbarians. Bound by rigid traditions, she dreams of escaping to the world beyond her mountain home.
The only hopefor achieving the kind of freedom she searches for is to learn how to wield the mysterious power used by the tribe's coven known as the Song of Usgar. Thankfully, Aoelyn may be the strongest witch to have ever lived, but magic comes at price. Not only has her abilities caught the eye of the brutish warlord that leads the tribe, but the demon of the mountain hunts all who wield the Coven's power, and Aoelyn's talent has made her a beacon in the night.
