The War of Transition

Breton Janes By BretonJanes Updated Jun 10, 2012

In a world on the verge of scientific discovery, the old ways of mysticism are no longer upheld in society. Sorcerers and magicians are persecuted in the greatest purge in history; a bloody civil war where the side with the greater numbers will emerge victorious. This is a time for alchemists and scientists, explorers and scholars. A time for rogues and assassins, political strife and corruption among kings and noblemen. A new age is over the horizon, but just who will survive this grand transition, this bloody divide, is uncertain. For when science and magic collide, no one is safe.

This is an amazing story. The suspense is enthralling - it definitely makes this a page turner, and the plot and world you've brought us in is absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait for more!

@AvocadoBaby :D Thanks! Hope you like it, it's definitely very different from a lot of the stuff here on Wattpad and I know that means a lot of people will have trouble getting into my stories, but I'm so glad you're enjoying it so far

Great first chapter! I thought the pace on the first page was a little slow but it picked up when the riders charged in. Your descriptions are really good and I look forward to reading more of your work. =)
