The Dereliction is a novel about Saia, a young girl who lives in a civilization that has been reared by a trio of powerful gods. These gods grant a few chosen mortals with a touch of true divinity, transforming them into conduits for immense power. Just as Saia was about to receive this blessing,  the gods mysteriously disappeared, leaving Saia without a purpose in life.

Ten years later, Saia is working a crummy job and teetering on the edge of depression. But the gods return once more and grant Saia both the divine power she was promised and a secret mission: she must prevent a disaster that could destroy her people, the gods themselves — maybe even the fabric of the entire Universe.
