Prophecies say that once every thousand years, one shall rise to bring about a new age of darkness. Through them, the world shall know of war, famine, pestilence and death. Besieged by the maws of evil, humankind shall suffer in agony as they watch everything they once knew be unmade before them...

In the beginning of the year 578, dark clouds loom over the northern continent, as many bizarre events start taking place. War seems inevitable. Kingdoms will fall, empires will crumble.

Follow the story of many different characters while they try to survive in a grim, unforgiving world. A place where might makes right, and those who lack it are fated to misery.

I've always been a fan of harsh settings that stack the odds against characters make you want to see them succeed. This story's no different. The start definitely got me hooked, and the more I keep reading, the more I enjoy it. 


Also helps that I'm into gorey/visceral descriptions and stories, kind of like Berserk and Goblin Slayer. It's all pretty great, keep it up!

I don't get why this isn't trending. THIS IS AMAZING. The characters. The grammar. The descriptions of the environment. Like, there was this place where a woman plays the piano. I felt like I was there with her. Sharing her sorrow. Her pain. her feeling of inevitability. Simply outstanding. I really need to step up my own writing game...........wow.

I'm actually amazed this story isn't getting more views. Professionally written, brilliantly paced, an intriguing premise. Some pretty graphic and strong adult content throughout, but that shouldn't be enough to deter anyone from this quality adventure. Real high quality stuff from the author. Consider yourself followed. Really enjoying the progression so far.
