The Disquieted Land : The fifth book of the Memory Stone series finds Theus in a whole new world, one that is free from the threat of Donal’s black magic and Ind’Petro’s desire for dominance. Theus intends to pursue a normal life, beginning with bringing his courtship of Coriae to a conclusion. But life slowly reveals that there are problems in the world, and it turns out that the problems are originating among the Gods and Goddesses of the land. The fallout from the divine conflict imposes pain and suffering upon mortals, and only Theus can fight the battle to restore peace to the lands.
“The metal cuffs around his wrists glowed dully. They momentarily reminded him of the crushing and extraordinary battles he had gone through just a few weeks earlier, when he’d been in Southsand and had fought Donal, then vanquished Ind’Petro. The battles had been terrible, soul-numbing and physically painful. Yet at the moment, he found the discomfort of his hangover to seem just as unpleasant, and he wished he could magically wash away his growing unsteadiness.
He looked across the room at the door to his bathing room, and prepared to launch himself in that direction, when his mind belatedly recognized that his cuffs were still slightly aglow, and offered a miraculous rescue from the effects of his over-indulgence.
Theus gave an audible sigh of relief as he lifted his cuffs to his temples, and then trickled a light stream of energy into his own body, an immediate balm that removed his headache and then his raspy throat and then his churning stomach and his weak legs.
“Oh thank you Limber,” he practically crooned the phrase.
“And thank you Baccoso,” he added an additional praise to the god of healing. He wasn’t sure if Baccoso deserved thanks for the delivery of relief through magic, but he knew the god felt sensitive about all the healing that Theus had accomplished through more ordinary medical means; Baccoso expected to receive credit from Theus.”
