A brutal war.
A girl raised as a proud soldier, all too willing to fight and die for her country.
A man whose life has been shattered, remade into one of fear and rage and hate.
A boy who is caught in the web of politics, who experiences horrible things not meant for anyone, much less a child as young as him.
This is a tale of two countries at war, and the lives of the people who reside there, featuring some supernatural powers, heavy religion, and some quite frankly terrible people.
The story and its characters are my creation; any similarity to other works or to current events is not intended. Plagiarism is not acceptable... honestly, have a bit of self-respect. I don't particularly care if you vote for this work or not. My only desire is feedback so that I can become a better writer.
