Huon doesn’t want to be a murderer. He has no choice.
Forced to become an Honourbound soldier in the Everlasting King’s army, Huon struggles to do what is right when his actions are completely out of his control. He attained Knighthood, and is the strongest he’s ever been, but his advancement means nothing while oathbound.
But oaths have been broken before — his own father’s — and even while he’s forced to fight for a cause he doesn’t believe in, he tries to discover a way out. A way to be free once more, to continue toward his impossible goal.
In the spirit of progression fantasies like Cradle and Mage Errant, enter a realm with magical beasts, where surgecallers can cultivate essence to strengthen their weapons, enhance their bodies and wield elemental magic.
