Blackwood Marauders

Glory is for the gods. The rest make do.

After failing the military entrance exam, an upstanding young man finds himself responsible for a group of vicious, bloodthirsty mercenaries and a hot-headed noblewoman with a twisted plot at her heels. A fast-paced, character-driven standalone in a familiar fantasy setting that dares you to dig deeper...

“You could be rotting in a gutter somewhere. Your bones could be at the bottom of the sea. You must not have been the only child in that ship that day, but I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re the only one left alive. And maybe you’ve decided that it ought to mean something, that you were destined for great things if only you could do better, be better, anything but yourself…but that is asking for too much from a single man, Luc. Too much. You are not made lesser by your circumstances. It is how you respond that dictates your worth.”
