War is Hell, and the innocent suffer the most.

With most of its leadership annihilated, the Sacred Clan has scattered. Its survivors have turned their attention on the helpless across Asia.

Despite Akio’s relentless determination to eradicate them, the Clan’s atrocities grow more brutal each day.

A despot emerges amid the hellscape of battle.

The Clan’s mantle of supremacy doesn’t stay empty long, and nothing will deter the new ruler from achieving his goals:

Ensure the purity of the Sacred Clan and kill Akio—preferably painfully.

The assaults on humanity are endless.

The Weretigers aren’t the only threat, and their villages aren’t the only hot spots of contention.

Faced with a war on several fronts, Akio and his friends must defend against attacks from all directions.

Mix in a few Forsaken, and it’s a recipe for complete disaster.

Can Akio stop the attacks? And can he survive if more people he cares about die before it’s over?

Thank you for stopping by. I suppose I should start by telling you a little about me

I have lead an eclectic life, to say the least. Fresh out of high school, three days after graduation, I was at Lackland AFB in San Antonio, Texas for basic training. After basic, I spent a few years as a Loadmaster on C-130 aircraft in the MS Air National Guard. It was a great gig for a young man and I got to see a whole lot of the world as a guard bum. I had a blast and got paid to do it.

Realizing it was time to settle down and get a ""real"" job I spent the next twenty-six plus years working in law enforcement. I saw the best and the worst in humanity during those years. The things that one human being is capable of doing to another is mindblowing. I won more battles than I lost and came out on the other end with some scars but mostly intact and most importantly...Retired.

During those years reading Fantasy and Science Fiction was my escape from reality and my sanity saver. I read everything I could find that had magic or space ships in it. The farther away from the real world the better.

In 2018 I answered a call for short story submissions in an existing urban fantasy universe created by two authors who were opening their world up for us fans to play in. In late 2018 my story was accepted and on April 16, 2019, I became a published author thanks to Michael Anderle and Martha Carr's generosity in allowing me to write in their world.

That was the first but most assuredly not the last story that I will write. I am currently working on a couple of projects that are the kind of books I like, and hope you will too, to read.

Thank you for stopping by and keep a lookout for things to come.
