The BlackgodBook - 1997
The River flowed from the mountains to the distant sea, and everywhere he touched, he ruled. But the world beyond the River's reach was a riot of gods and ghosts. And into this rich and dangerous land came a surprising refugee: Hezhi, the River's own daughter, running for her life.
The River bent all his might and cunning to the task of finding his wayward daughter. Only the Blackgod--a dangerous creature of guile and cunning--claimed to have a way for Hezhi to defeat the River.
