#TopTenList #Snippet: 'The Hazards of the Old Ones' by Ren Garcia
Life ends, new life is born. Everything balances.
When Carahil, an Elemental Spirit, witnesses the destruction of an entire world, he’s faced with the ultimate question: how far is he willing to go to save it?
Carahil will gather friends-like Lord and Countess Blanchefort, renowned Fleet Captain and ex-Black Hat, to help. He’ll destroy lives, like that of Captain Davage’s best friend and first officer, Lt. Kilos, who is made to quit her job aboard the Seeker and go into the dreaded Hazards of the Old Ones: a place where only she can stand. Carahil will also search out disreputable sources like the scalawag Duke of Oyln, who has something malicious and wailing locked away in his dungeon.
To make matters worse, hidden forces threaten to destroy everyone Carahil needs to help him. Ominous messages from nowhere, surprise visits, phantom people and taunting voices complicate matters.
However, the most dangerous threat to this mission could be Carahil himself, who faces demonic transformation for getting involved and may upset the cosmic Scales of the Universe in a bad way. Carahil, though struggling to achieve a greater good, might be the cause of a horrific tragedy instead.
Hell awaits should he fail.

She felt a whole bunch of things as she stood there on Blanchefort
dock—she felt left out, unimportant, insignificant, sad, anxious …
angry. Standing there amid the waving, cheering crowd, the husbands
and wives, the boy and girlfriends, she felt like she used to long ago
in Tusck as she trawled the marketplaces with her brothers and sisters
looking for food: she felt like a peasant. –Lt Kilos watching the Seeker fly away without her.
