Everything was in place: a thousand years war waiting for a champion; a great evil was stirring in the Ash Lands; a wise priest kept an ancient prophecy; there was a reluctant hero fated to fall in love with the beautiful maiden.
Then the hero readily slaughtered an innocent village and it all went to hell...
In the ensuing mayhem – dark-alley knife fights, merciless executions, savage massacres, bloody civil war, epic battles, duels for love, cold betrayals, and hot jealousies – two men battle for the chance to lead their country to salvation. In turn, each will become savior and traitor, hero and rogue, redeemer and accuser, until there is nothing left to them except cold steel and raw humanity.
Follow the aging priest down his misguided path and witness how the fear of his mortality has stripped him of his morality, leaving nothing but an obsession of creating a hero in his own image, price be damned.
Escort the morally gray, real characters, matched only by those of G.R.R. Martin's Games of Thrones, as chaste maidens become lewd whores, godly men shift in to depraved killers, and hesitant heroes turn in to willing villains.
Follow the narrative’s bloody footprints, past deflowered flowery maidens, around depraved ambitions and good intentions – careful, don’t trip over the bodies - until you make a left at the dark humor, then keep going until you are steeped in the Ashes of Heroes...
