All paths lead to betrayal...
It is a land of warring kingdoms. Solus is six years old when he is orphaned and left to die in a conquered nation. In his darkest hour, he is rescued by the beautiful and mysterious Adara Wayflower, and initiated into the centuries old Guild of Assassins. After training many years in the art of killing, Solus is a weapon deployed against the conquerors. But as Solus ventures deeper and deeper into the heart of the enemy’s empire, infiltrating their Imperial Court, he discovers his patriotic mission is not so black and white, and he begins to question everything he was raised to believe.
Convinced there is a better way for him to serve his impoverished and defeated countrymen, Solus plunges into the deadly political intrigues of the powerful Phoenix Empire, and goes head-to-head with the power hungry high regent intent on usurping the throne and seeking to kill Solus at every turn. On top of that, the Guild of Assassins is never far behind, demanding Solus fulfills his clandestine obligations. Solus’ loyalties will be stretched to a breaking point, and ultimately, the fate of two kingdoms and the lives of everyone he loves will depend on whom Solus will betray.
“Bonds of Orphans” is a unique take on the epic fantasy genre, blending emotionally driven characters with action and a hint of magic.
