Today’s Free Kindle eBook: The Assembly of Thirteen: The First Two Companions,
In a world of beauty and natural magic, the avarice of one royal family subverts the order of rule with lies and trickery, enabling them to seize the throne of the entire Empire. Tyranny and destruction are traits passed down the royal line, leading to present times with yet another despot on the throne. Emperor Klastos Faltesto’s apparent aim is to rid the land of any magic that he does not personally control and to eliminate the non-human population in the process. Death to any who oppose him by using the magic of demons and Destroyers to combat magic, without thought to the final outcome. The lives of the virtuous, the worthy and the mighty have mostly been lost through war; the balance of magic is in chaos and the laws of the land twisted beyond recognition or memory. The champion destined to start the insurgence must be brought in from elsewhere. A simple box, a gift, transports June Dunbar from Livermore, California to the Kingdom of Vanyan within the Empire of Quetza. June is the champion, the first who must ignite the rebellion, but she is a broken woman with demons of her own. The second is a giantess, from a race who live under a curse. She obeys the Emperor as she must and thus lives in service as a warrior, murdering and pillaging, but the loss of a loved one moves her to break free of the curse. These two must fight their own demons, accept magic, and save the lives of those who will follow—thirteen in all, to form the Assembly of Thirteen. This is a tale of both death and hope; of blood, incest and slavery, but also of honor, oaths and loyalty. The events span generations and different races, where distrust and hatred are woven together with courage and honesty to create a tapestry of life.The First Two Companions will draw you inexorably into the lives of many as the Assembly gathers, and the battle to end all battles approaches.
