Your curse can become your power.
Norman Septimus is content with his ordinary life of stealing food while living underneath the comfort of Gutterman’s Village. Despite his lack personal relationships, and the villagers of the surface despising him, he finds peace in his individual freedom. His routine comes to an abrupt end when he is tasked with saving his food-deprived village from corruption by bringing a rare and ancient artifact to the king of Zephoria. Little does Norman know that he will be entangled in a plot to murder the king, devised by a mysterious group of assassins vowing for vengeance against him. To make matters worse, a fiery curse awakens in Norman’s heart, consuming him in flames that erupts from his own rage. Join Norman along with Arlock, the intelligent Orc, and Mariel Xerxes, the daughter of the king, in this debut novel, where everything is at stake to bring balance to the kingdom…and the rest of the world…
Second Era delivers a wonderful debut with Norman Septimus: The Assassins Circle. It’s lighthearted where it needs to be, and that helps to enhance the shadowy bits of the story as well.
