Rule of the gods, book one
To Kill a King
Crossing the thin line between justice and revenge, the soldier-prince Crafræl known as the Black Lion defies caste-tradition, law and even the gods’ edicts in an attempt to kill his father, the mad god-king of Atlantis. Destined from birth by Mytheras the goddess of war, to slay the ruler of Atlantis. Can Crafræl survive through a desperate plan that could shatter the prince sanity or kill him? Will the victory be worth the awful price in lives lost? How much will one mans’ hate raise the butcher’s bill?
He who fights with monsters should look to it that
he himself does not become a monster.
Beyond Good and Evil—Friedrich Nietzsche.
