Dark Brothers of the Light


With the poll up, I thought it would be best to make a post about each of the possibles here.

Dark Brothers of the Light is about a young sa’necari named Isranon.

The original publisher’s blurb is:

Taken as a blood-slave by Anksha the Beast, Isranon, a young necromancer descended of Isranon Dawnhand must choose between his dead father’s teachings of pacifism and his lycan mentor’s warrior beliefs in order to survive. Anksha is a demon-eater, who dines on flesh, blood, lives and magic, binding her slaves to her through a dominance-link set into every fiber of their beings. In a brutal world of vampires, blood-drinking sa’necari necromancers, and demons, Isranon must find the key to Anksha’s inner nature, while escaping the snares set for him by both vampires and his own kind. Together with his lycan mentor, Nevin, he reaches out for allies and answers in a world growing steadily more hostile toward him for reasons he does not fully comprehend. The vampire lord, who is Anksha’s master, is creating a monstrous undead creature such as has not been seen in more than 50,000 years to take the world from the gods who rule it. What can one young slave do to stop them in the face of such terrifying odds?

Creed of the Dark Brothers of the Light

“The Darkness hunts us and the Light does not want us. Better to step willingly into the fires than to live undead. Better to die with honor than to take a life in the rites. Let each mon go to his own path, but these are ours. And these will always be ours, for this is what we were born to. This is the path the gods have given us, for we are the Dark Brothers of the Light. We are the walking dead who live, for our lives were forfeit with our birth. Forfeit twice over for our choice to live as myn, not monsters, though we are forced to dwell among the monsters. Set yourself apart in your words, in your deeds, in your silence—always in your silence, for silence is your castle. Be as still as the deer in the forest, and if you are fortunate the predators will not notice you. For when they notice you, they will eat you.”
Creed of the Dark Brothers
