Mother of Rebellion
by B.K. Boes
The breaking was only the beginning...
Rebellion brews as nations struggle for power. Survival is pitted against compassion, duty against faith, and loyalties against love.
The Schism, a war that raged a thousand years ago, left the continent of Leyumin broken. Near constant war and destruction define the millennium afterward, but the heavens have promised reunifcation and with it peace. Now, two nations vie for dominance and the title of Unitor. One does so through politics and manipulation, the other through brute force and self-proclaimed pure blood.
Five unlikely people will shape the things to come: a slave-wife, a warrior, a guardian of history, a disciple, and a young nobleman. As they embark upon their journeys, their decisions sow the beginnings of change, and the consequences they reap prove to be more than they're prepared to handle.
Meanwhile, all wait in anticipation for the Unitor to emerge as the future looms uncertain.
