About the Book

“Beneath the rule of tyrants, monsters may become heroes.”

Reading is forbidden, and the penalty for non-compliance is a life of slavery enabled by the forcible administra¬tion of a mind rotting drug. Yet, there are those possessed of the will to seek illumination: Kikkan, a former slave on the run, and Quillion, a mercenary and self-taught scholar. Together they seek out a small band of rebels living in hiding who offer the promise of a better world. Their leader is a mysterious figure known only as The Reader of Acheron.
