Summary

Hand to sword he serves his king. Brothers in blood and conquest they bend and shape the world to their collective will. From the ashes of a brutal civil war they built an empire, and their hand-picked tyrants, rule without mercy or pity. A kingdom with no borders, it exists within every continent, country, and city across the globe. Hand to sword he stands with his king. Once defenders and protectors, their disillusionment became disdain then hate. They embraced the predator and declared humanity a means to end, chattel to do with as they wish. At war with their ancient enemy they are unaware of the threat that lurks in the shadows. Loyal to the light, their brethren rose from the ashes and swore to defend humanity from the Thirty Tyrants and their world order. A rebellion, pitting evil against evil has raged for over two hundred years. On one fateful night three people are drawn into this world, one from the top, the other from the bottom, and the third as a means to an end. A soldier, a thief, and a librarian set on their paths to a collision with the Thirty Tyrants, their Hand, and his King.

Out of the night that covers me

Black as the pit from pole to pole

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul

 

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody but unbowed

 

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the horror of the shade

And yet the menace of the years

Finds and shall find me unafraid

 

It matters not how strait the gate

How charged with punishments the scroll

I am the master of my fate

I am the captain of my soul

William Ernest Henley

 

 

6/20I've recently been editing and reworking this entire book. It was the first thing that I ever wrote, and it showed. My mind has been on it a lot due to so much of the story correlating with current events. Bear in mind I started this six years ago, and researched extensively. So to see certain things I wrote actually come to fruition in the real world is wild and unnerving. I debated bringing the story forward in time but I don't think I will. Having it catch up to current events will actually work out better. I deleted chapters 1-14 because so much has changed and the writing needed lots of work. I will start posting chapters as soon as I can. I have three other books that need finsihing as well. So there's a lot on my plate.

In the meantime I hope you enjoyed the poem. Its one of my favorites and plays a part in the story for three of my main characters.
