Innocence is subjective, and power always has its price--so his elders told him. Silas Blane is destined for greatness. Born into an elite family with many skeletons in the closet, he learns to harness his inherent shamanic powers and finds purpose in the Old Ways of his ancestors. As he turns fifteen, Silas walks a treacherous edge between love and expectation and discovers the fragility of desire. Nothing is what it seems in a universe where power is fleeting, and enemies close their grasp around the last hope of the free worlds.

Vintage science fiction, retro-futurism, and space opera blend in this decopunk drama. Here we have chromed fusion rockets, spooky secret societies, shamanic bone oracles, robots for every occasion, and a perilous, affluent world which hails to "Downton Abbey" and "Dynasty".

The 'unofficial' trailer for the series:

Episode 1: "Arrivals and Rivals" received an Honorable Mention in SciKick's Starter Competition 3/2/16!

"You've got a way with words and an ability to describe a scene that makes us feel like we were there.  Good luck with your work." BookShelfBattle

"Honestly, this is one of the best, most riveting and complex stories I've come across in some time..." RebelDynasty

"Great chapter! Dialogue is completely natural. Great reveal. I love that you deliver such strong imagery and tone without anything flowery. Love this so far!" OtherEvilTwin

Truly astonishing! I think you develop everything and show your character depth excellently. The chapter was clear, crisp, and very enjoyable. Can't wait to read more!

Careful plotting... feels like a little psychopath in the making... "...runs in the blood."

Been meaning to comment on the individual Episodes for a while now, but before that, a general observation:
                              This would be an *amazing* setting for a future Bioshock game (for obvious reasons).
