Status: Finished  |  Genre: Fantasy  |  House: Booksie Classic
Two young men, raised as brothers to wield death with fluency and grace. They embark on the same journey and face the same choices, but ultimately follow separate paths. Their decisions result in two different destinies, and place the pair on opposite sides of a conflict that has raged for years.

Originally created as a NaNoWriMo piece, Salvation has undergone editing and additional change to become one of my longest and possibly best pieces of work. It was designed to be the first book (or part) in 3, however the project has been put on hold... I just didn't like the entire 2nd part enough...

If you have any comments, questions, or a desire to write the next part, let me know.
