The Dark Army

The lost ones, the children of war – after the fall of the Red Wall orphans abound. With no family, no home, they have but one place to go – the so-called Warphanage; where they will train to become the world’s next generation of champion defenders. But the school has become a prison . . . Their lessons now taught through the crack of the whip. Some push on, growing stronger with every lash, while others fall, and are never seen again . . . In the end, their new destiny is clear . . . a death-march into the Black Door. But one student has not only grown strong through his trials . . . he has attained perfection because of them. And Rian intends to use his skills not in the Rift, but against his new masters.

1. INTRO

He remembered his mother . . . the flowery scent of her auburn hair; the curly locks tickling his face as they danced in the breeze.  Her eyes, so soft, so sad . . . so distant -- until he caught their gaze, then came a glimmer; in the wet pools at the edges of those brown orbs a spark of joy alighted.

He remembered his mother . . . a crimson fountain erupted from the slit in her neck . . . in a spray of blood his world turned red. 

His father . . .  He recalled little of the man, and that which he did, he wished he could forget . . .

. . . a madman . . . a demon in red.  The demon came for him . . . hunted him . . . his screams gave himself away . . .

Then there was Devon . . . his brother, his savior, the only family he had left.  Him, he would never forget . . .

They became lost ones, two more children of war . . .

Together they survived a nightmare . . . and together they would face many more . . .
