The Hymn of Battle Saga

Book By: ZM East
Science fiction

This is a forward to my saga, The Hymn of Battle. The first book is already on sale at Amazon.

This is a space opera that spans generations as two empires fight against each other while forgotten, ancient warriors pull the strings.

The first book deals with one such warrior, Nisa, training a boy to become her assassin to make allies and destroy her enemy before she starts a war.

But can this boy withstand the effects of war, or will it be too much for him?

Heaven may hold a grudge against you, friends may hold a grudge against you, even you may.

But I'll forgive you.

Most people hide themselves behind masks. Some are metal, some are plastic, some are cloth. And still yet there are others that can hide behind nothing simpler than a smile. Regardless of the visage chosen, it is a mask - it is a lie.

I've worn many in my lifetime and still I draw lines on my face as if they could somehow change the disposition of my heart, my soul. But you know well that they never will. So, despite our arguments, I cannot condemn someone who wears a mask. I've seen too much to judge anyone; I've lived too long to hold grudges.

You only wanted what we all want; the most elusive and dangerous thing in the world: happiness. And again, I find that I cannot condemn someone that chases after it; it is too much a temptation to resist. Few take your path and even fewer do it with your zeal; yet, you brought so much good to this world that you refuse to see.

You didn't want me to write this; you knew what I would say. You wanted to stay consumed in your dark world, your sadness, your anger, your pain. I know, I've been in that world too. But you deserve redemption - we all do. You deserve to see what goodness rested in your heart, what bright world exists beyond your self-satisfying induced hell.

Maybe my words can't reach you, but they must be said and I fear that mine is the only voice that will speak them.
