In a universe inhabited by gods, freemen, and slaves, life is especially cruel & harsh. But things only go downhill when Lauranya and her daughter Ari find themselves abandoned on a planet where the fast rising tide will force them to higher ground. The only problem; the highlands are populated with a dizzying array of nightmarish creatures.
Left for dead, Lauranya and her daughter, Ari, struggle to survive on this bleak world. Even beyond the rising tide, and carnivorous fauna, the Drowning Planet is home to dozens of former rebels; all of which would enjoy seeing them both dead.
Meanwhile, in the skies above, gods and ethereal beings battle for possession of Ari’s powers. As a necromancer, her growing abilities allow her to blur the line between life and death in ways that make her a valuable commodity, even to the gods themselves.
Drowning World is the first book in the Siren series, and the second novel from author S.R. Ruark. Known for her vivid manner of storytelling, Ruark never disappoints.

My interests are widely varied, so much so that when discussing different types of genres and subcultures; I keep being asked which lane I’m driving in. All I can say is that my lane is usually all over the map! My stories are never just short stories. I think I have one, maybe two that I can/will call short, but even then they will end up being close to 75 page novellas. I keep a dream journal and a notebook just for one liners/off the cuff remarks because anything can and will be used!
