About the Book
Nightsong, Book One: Nightfall, a novel in three Volumes.
Please Note: This Volume One release contains Nightsong: Nightfall Chapters 0 through 10, it is not a complete book, but instead being serialized 11 chapters at a time. Chapters 11 through 21 will be released as Volume II in April. Volume III, Chapters 22-33 will be released by June, at which time the entire work as one unit will be re-released as a single work on Amazon. This complete work will become Nightfall, Book One of the Nightsong Saga, the first of the fifteen book series. Serializing of novels as a way to first release them used to be all the rage. Conan Doyle serialized several Holms novels; Dickens first serialized almost all of his books, including Oliver Twist. This utilizes Leanpub's system of allowing authors to publish unfinished works which can be revised an unlimited number of times before a "final" version is published.
Nightsong, Nightfall --on Leanpub-- will initially be released in three Volumes of eleven Chapters each.
Like many modern fantasy novels targeted at adults, Nightsong contains some sexual scenes and situations, but the book is not erotica.
Nightsong--as a sci-fi-series--is a story of human strife, survival, and eventual triumph under brutal tyrannical conditions. Three heroes at odds with each other must strive to come together in order to fight an empire that swallowed up their world, and they will do anything to achieve vengeance and freedom for their peoples. As Book One of Nightsong opens, Prince Morgan "Blackskull" Valori is a conceited 21 year old, a prince who--being born the third son--has no prospects for ever ruling the planet of Alaria. Like his favorite uncle, he will live his life in the fast-lane and the public-eye, his only excitement being the screams of millions of race fans, the dying gasps of his sword-fighting opponents, and the more private cries of his many lovers. Morgan will be idolized by many Alarians for being "their Black Prince," but he will never rule them. As the one his brothers hold responsible for his father's death at the hands of Black Dragon pirates three years before, Morgan has fought a personal crusade to kill as many pirates as he can, struggling to wipe out his personal guilt by doing so. Kyrie "Blaize" Saturai (25) grew-up a strong-willed and beautiful young woman in one of Alaria's most powerful corporate households, niece of Phoenix Corp's CEO and founder, the legendary "heartless" Gordon Xycor. Phoenix Corp makes medical devices that can practically bring the dead back to life, but its fringe science is suspicious to most, even hated by many. Three years older than Prince Morgan, Kyrie also goes into the fast-paced life of a corvette racer, making a billion fans--men and women--lust for her gorgeous form. Conspiracy theories point to Phoenix Corp as the source of the technology behind the success of the Black Dragon cartel, and for this Prince Morgan has formed a natural hatred of their public representative, Kyrie Saturai. Ciro "Andronicus" Andrews (45) managed to achieve all he ever really wanted by escaping his former life as a brutal space-pirate. Not just any pirate, but the son of the Draco himself, the head of the Black Dragon cartel. After falling in love with one of his clan's psychic slaves, Ciro stole a ship and left the life of blood-gold behind, starting a family of his own shortly thereafter. Each of these people have their lives shattered when--in a mere fifteen minute period--the Terran Empire violently and brutally conquers their world - Alaria. Being written for adults--instead of nine year-olds--Nightsong has a more complex structure than Star Wars books. (Spoilers have been removed) Welcome to the return of character development in science fiction, with a plot that's just a shade of Game of Thrones in space.
