The Lion and the Scorpion - The Black Order
A meteor falls. An empire rises. In a world where magic is new, the rules are still being written, and power is up for grabs. The metal from the sky has been forged into instruments of death, of life, to steal a man’s vital essence and give it to another. The Black Order rises with the new empire, an order of men with the ability, and the ruthlessness, to wield the metal.
