A Sellsword’s Compassion
by Jacob Peppers
The king is dead.
The world is thrown into war as the late king’s sons and daughters battle over who will claim their father’s throne and soldiers flock to one cause or the other in hope of a better tomorrow.
At least, most of them.
If life has taught the jaded sellsword, Aaron Envelar, anything, it’s that hope is for fools and causes are a sure remedy for breathing.
But when his latest job sends him stumbling into a prince’s assassination and a conspiracy threatening to destroy the entire realm, Aaron is forced to choose sides in a fight he doesn’t want between forces he doesn’t understand.
Thrust into a world of mythical assassins, a madman with superhuman strength, and a nagging ball of light with a superiority complex who claims to be the embodiment of compassion, Aaron must take on his hardest job yet—staying alive.
