The One-Eyed King
by Kenny S. Rich
In a futuristic world still reeling from the ashes of protracted nuclear warfare, there are levels to humanity. With the planet’s scarce resources severely depleted, survival of the fittest is once more the way of the world. But when one ruling order decides who is fit, equality is history and oppression is the new normal.
Into this chaotic world hostile to the disabled, a blind orphan boy is thrust. Iori is kidnapped by an unlikely resistance and trained for many years as the ruling order gets closer to discovering their whereabouts. These soldiers literally can’t see and this handicap has become their greatest strength. Not only are their other senses heightened to the point of giving them superior fighting skills, but they also represent the only hope for a human race with a peaceful, true and just vision for the future. As he comes of age, Iori will learn to fight fire with fire.
