About Light in the Gloaming
Like A Game of Thrones with a C.S. Lewis twist, the characters champion history’s great thinkers, from Machiavelli to Locke to Nietzsche, and bring them to battle, even in the darkest of underground cities.
“The Gloaming was worse than the grave...”
Or so Tryst believed when he banished the former prince to this secret and brutal exile. Now Tryst sits on the throne of Valemidas. He feasts with nobles and prepares an army to conquer the world.
But things are never as stable as they seem. Old loyalties remain. The people of Valemidas groan under Tryst’s heavy yoke and his network of spies. While the seeds of rebellion are planted, Tryst’s own family is divided. His sister has ambitions exceeding her brother’s, and their half-sister wants vengeance for the disappeared prince she loved. No one escapes the Gloaming, but perhaps the fallen prince is different. What would happen if a man emerged from a place worse than the grave?
Alliances will crumble, battles will rage, and souls will transform in the Gloaming.
