Cradle of the Gods – Thomas Quinn Miller

In the world of Allwyn, humans are almost extinct.
A war among the gods has led to the downfall of humanity and banishment of their god. A thousand years later, the remaining humans eke out an existence on the fringes of a vast dwarven empire.
Ghile, one of the last survivors, is preparing for his Rite of Attrition in a human settlement known as the Cradle of the Gods. Meanwhile, Almoriz the Sorcerer and his apprentice Riff arrive in Ghile’s village for one of their annual visits, setting forth a series of events that will change Ghile’s life forever.
He is marked as the Stonechosen, and wields powers of the gods themselves. But Ghile is not alone; others chosen to fulfill the prophecy are also traveling to the Cradle, seeking to destroy him. The time of the Stonechosen has come.
