Lee Carlon is the author of The Bastard Cadre, a series of fast, fun, futuristic epic fantasy novels without the epic word count.
The Bastard Cadre includes elements of science fiction, mythology, and magic. The stories are set in post-apocalyptic Newterra where the True Gods treat the people like pieces on a game board in their never-ending wars. The world is populated with immortals, AIs, shape-shifters, cyborgs, dragons, and a host of science fiction and fantasy villains, anti-heroes, and heroines.
At the centre of The Bastard Cadre is Avril Ethanson, a young man who was raised apart from the gods and their chosen, and yet is bound as the first-sworn to a scattered cadre of bondsmen. Despite his best efforts to resist, Avril and the cadre he is expected to lead are pulled into a chosen’s machinations and the gods’ deadly games

This book is the second in a series. It has the look of an epic saga. The story line has the characters zig and zaging from what you expect their reactions to be in response to varying situations. It makes for a fun read since you cannot predict what will happen in the fast pace of one crisis after another.
