War sweeps the land as the sons and daughters of the late King Marcus battle over who will claim their father’s throne and able-bodied men and women flock to one cause or the other in the hopes of a better tomorrow. At least, most of them. If life has taught the jaded sellsword, Aaron Envelar, anything, it’s that hope is for fools and causes are a sure remedy for breathing. But when his latest job leads him to the corpse of a prince and a conspiracy that threatens to destroy the entire realm, Aaron is forced to choose sides in a war he doesn’t want, between forces he doesn’t understand. Thrust into a world of mythical assassins, a madman with a superhuman strength, and a nagging ball of light with a superiority complex who claims to be the embodiment of compassion, Aaron takes on his hardest job yet—staying alive.

Jacob Peppers lives in Armuchee, Georgia with his wife and three dogs. His short story, “The Lies of Autumn,” was a finalist for the 2013 Eric Hoffer Award for Short Prose. His other short works have been published in various literary journals. When he’s not writing, he goes to the gym and spends time with his wife and dogs, trying (and failing) to teach them tricks. So far, he’s taught them the trick of sneaking his food when he’s not looking–the rest are a work in progress.
