Chief Robert Dominick leads the militia of Defense Force for South Gate and, belonging to the Order of Knights, is bound by a knight’s honor.Using scavenged metal, guns, and inventions built from scrap, they create weapons of war, both for defense and to overcome other violent, regional populations. A serious error in judgment causes Dominick to lose someone he loves and creates an arch-enemy who will rise again to confront him. Meanwhile, life in their own new society suffers from upheavals as politicians go crooked, and even those blessed with spiritual guidance cannot tame the reckless spirit of the new order.Massive battles ensue as Dominick’s forces take on unprincipled marauders. But things are just heating up, as a deciphered communiqué reveals a ruthless band of pirates, the Concordians, have targeted Dominick’s holdings. With mixtures of machine and beast, they are ruthlessly attacked, outmanned, and seemingly outgunned by the worst kind of humans ever: slavers. Only by using wits and maintaining power can they overcome their impending doom—a doom that would suppress their people into lawlessness and slavery.Governing knights and leaders of opposing forces square off in battles of swords, machinery, and words, in the midst of political upheavals and unexpected betrayals. Can those who seek a better life quell the viciousness of these tumultuous times?In mercurial shifts, friends become enemies and enemies turn into allies, while the upheaval of forces thrusts toward the dynamic conclusion. In action-packed battle scenes detailed with life and death, Dominick’s forces fight the long war—the war of survival in the land after the Collapse.But no one is safe from betrayal. As he fights for freedoms and truths, it is in the dark that he finally becomes who fate has meant him to be. His destiny calling to him through honor to make hard decisions, scarring him through battles of the soul, Sir Dominick is led to his final battle of truth, with himself and who he has become.
