“Fear not the dead, fear the living!”

His name is Rave. The one who, 700 years ago, had lost. The necromancer who conquered half the world with an army of the undead, but then was buried alive under a terrible curse:  never to die, never to be saved. He was so feared that all necromancy curses were buried with him, so that never again could such a dangerous magician arise.

Angelina – a weak historian-necromancer whose only talent was a flawless grasp of the language of the dead. Fate willed it that she find a mysterious gravestone and break the seal holding the one who was never to be released:  Rave – the King of the Dead!

Rave, the mightiest ruler of the undead of all time and all people, is now freed from the terrible curse and seeks to reclaim his throne and take revenge on the descendants of those who betrayed him.

But Angelina dreams only of keeping the details of her birth secret and becoming a real necromancer. But is this girl as simple as she seems?

Will the King of the Dead help this unknown girl or will he use her mysterious blood to regain his own power and speed his way to the throne? And what can they both do when passion begins to ruin all their plans, and dark desires call forth the worst poison? 

On that day it will become clear that the insane madness of the living can be more, more terrible than the bloody hunger of the undead….

Don’t miss this incredible dark saga of the Overlords of the Dead, already a bestseller in Russia, now finally available in English translation.

Hello! This is my first time writing and I'm quite excited. I hope you can enjoy my story as much as I do writing it. That being said, though I'm not sure to what degree yet, those warning tags are there for a reason, so if such topics are not up your alley I suggest you proceed with caution. The story will have a heavy gamelike presence, especially in the early stages. Though it is a VR novel, I do expect it to have some rather dark themes throughout the story.

There is romance I have planned for the story, however I do not believe I will write on it enough for it to deserve the tag, but if thats up your alley then you're in luck.

Thats all I have, Enjoy!

She never liked them, and it’s not as if there was anything terrible about them, she just didn't like them.  Too close, she thought. This is way too close... I don't like this,  Rosy frowned, not that she was homophobic or anything, but she doesn't know how to feel about this. Them attracted to her? How?

Apocalypse War: The Return of the Last Demon Slayer

Original Action Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Grimdark Profanity Sexual Content Gore Traumatising content War and Military

A litRPg novel of time travel and apocalyptic war in a medieval-fantastic grimdark world..

In the damned world of Artorias there is nothing but war and despair, but many heroes stand up against the dark forces to fight against the fateful destiny that promises to engulf all the souls it contains.
In the middle of the 21st century, all the humans of the Earth are summoned to this world to be used as frontline soldiers against the massive invasion of nightmarish existences that are pouring in from the immaterial dimensions.
But in spite of the powerful blessings offered by the Sorcerers and Gods of this world to turn them into superhumans and half-sorcerers, in this impossible war, they were ultimately nothing but cannon fodder.

Mars, a veteran who had survived the fall of the last kingdom, finally knows the peace he yearns for when death snatches him from this hell. But the promise of a peaceful and eternal rest, was not what awaited him. 
His return to life was a painful awakening when he realized that he had gone back 24 years to the beginning of the Ultimate War, and that it was neither the fruit of an illusion nor of his insane imagination.

Already exhausted and traumatized by a first life that he did not want to relive, being confronted again with the prospect of an existence doomed to see all those around him die in the most atrocious circumstances is not exactly something he is willing to accept. Not this time!

Tags - what you won't see: a harem (just a few sinister brothels), an MC with a teenage mind, a wish fulfillment story (only a man in search of overwhelming power to save his world).

Release schedule: two chapters per week (it's my first novel, but when I have more experience, will be higher.)

Author note: I am not a native English speaker, errors of grammar and syntax that I would be unable to see despite the time invested in editing to correct them will inevitably be present, my only way to see them will be with your help,  so let me know when you see any so that I can correct them.

Authors Notes:

I am writing this casually for the most part, so I cannot promise frequent or consistent uploads. However, I will be working on this for the forseeable future, and if I am knowingly taking a long break I will leave a notice stating such. I only have a rough idea of the story plot because I enjoy surprising myself as much as possible while I write. And because of this, I am anticipating that as I become better at writing and as the story becomes more fleshed out, I will go back and clean it up with the best of my abilities while striving to maintain as much of the original intent and direction as possible.

Please forgive me for any minor mistakes I might miss during the editing process, and I thank you for any feedback and support you give me in advance.

Story Notes:

Page Goals - a minimum of four pages per chapter release.

Word Goals - a minimum of 1,500 words per chapter release, a maximum of 4,000.

Original Gore Horror Multiple Lead Characters Short Story Post Apocalyptic Profanity Sci-fi Slice of Life

First off, this is kind of a challenge provided by a friend. I am not the best author/wordsmith but I'm going to do my best.

This will be an 'anthology' of sorts. A collection of different perspectives and short stories set in the same universe. Each story will be somewhere between 1 to 3 chapters in length, and will be seperated as such.

STARLESS

Millions of billions of years into the future, the final star has dimmed and died. The universe sits black, no more stars in the sky.  Yet life continues, hope springs eternal, and people continue to try to live their lives.  Subspace Drives have allowed universe-wide travel, and massive advances in the sciences has allowed for life to continue without the light of the stars.  Rogue planets powered by huge furnaces and thrusters, massive flotillas of ships wondering the void, huge and self-sufficient space stations, scavengers, raiders, planets orbiting black holes and more.  Also intergalactic two-dimensional horrors.  Every day is a struggle to survive, but what choice do those who live have, lay down and die? Not on your life.

Synopsis:

Fate is a peculiar but constant thing. Those who say they have 'broken fate' are blind to the truth, their own actions were guided by fate itself even if the existence of such a flimsy principle could be threatened.

A force outside the bounds of control of even gods, this is a story about another life who plays a larger role in the fate of a particular world. One that is naturally absorbed in conflict but only of small scale.

Her very existence pushes the boundaries of the conflict, even if she is oblivous. Penelope is a tragic existence swallowed by fate.

But not all fate is bad.


Warnings:

For safety reasons for future readers, I will consider the regular content of my chapters as R16+ only and any possible R18 chapters I may have planned will be titled as such. Thanks for those who listen to these guidelines, and in the future I may do a cleaner version.

I plan for this to be quite a slow novel (in my own opinion), so please don't expect action or romance every other chapter.


Chapters approx; 3,500 - 5,000.


The cover is not owned by me, please notify me if said owner wants it taken down.
