The industrious and technologically-advanced East engages the mystical and wizened West in a war that will shatter the contenent.

Rifles versus magic.

Brother against brother.

The new fighting the old.

A war of culture and conquest.

A slaughter in which compassion has finally drawn short.

 

Two souls lead their men, one on each side and both with storied histories of skill and success.

As decided by fate, their paths will cross, and both sides will lift the curtain of the afterlife for the other.

 

A Playright Operator and servant of the Emporer of the East and man among men.

A Half-Dragon Witch Knight of the West and an eater of men.

What will they learn amidst such unstoppable and inglorious murder?

 

This is a story of war, but it's also a story about what war is. This is an experiemntal, high fantasy, low-literature title and will be updated weekly until completion. This is also the tie-in serial with The Courts Divided's second book: Gravetower, which can be found at https://www.royalroad.com/amazon/B07DYVBZVX

Overall

The story is just an introduction so far but is a gritty feeling one on the frontlines.

Our hero is a knight officer from a conquered people fighting for the magic based kingdom against a smaller technology based enemy.

Story feels a little grimdark but its still early.
