Adventure / Fantasy


Magic runs bone deep... In a world overrun by monsters, humans struggle for survival underground. Magic is feared and reviled, but rooted deep in the bloodlines of families, cropping up once a generation. These individuals are cast out, banished to the Above where humans are far, far down the food chain. When her younger brother is tainted by magic and forced to the surface, Azzy follows, determined to save the only family she has left, no matter what he becomes.


It began with the Third Reich.

Magic suffered a slow death in the minds of mankind, supplanted by the cold steel of the industrial age and the callous march of science. Long forgotten were the warnings, the rules, and the boundaries that must not be crossed.

In his desire to bring the world to heel, the Fuhrer broke them all, combining his mad science with the darkest depths of sorcery. No one believed his experiments would wake something in the ether. No one thought he would bring something through the Gate. Not even he did, caught off guard when the abyss stared back. A vision of a new world sank its claws into his mind and drove him insane.

As nations allied against him, turning the physical tide of battle, the Fuhrer opened the Gate to the waiting void, and put a bullet through his temple. The dark magic rolled over the world, twisting the natural order, creating abominations and mutated versions of the wildlife. It sought out the hidden potential in human bloodlines, transforming millions into monsters.

Humans toppled far down the food chain, hunted and preyed upon by a world in chaos. Desperation drove them underground, huddling in ramshackle settlements deep in the earth. For generations, mankind scratched out a living in bedrock and darkness, fearful of magic, fearful of what it did to their neighbors, and loved ones.

Willing to do anything to keep it out.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?
