The King in the Cathedral

An exiled prince plots to overthrow his automaton jailer and become Everlasting Master of Games and undisputed Eternal Ruler of the Cathedral. The rebellion’s rescue mission catches him entirely by surprise.

  • Excerpt

    In the pale rippling sands of a nameless desert, there stands a derelict cathedral, a tribute to the cunning of its ancient architects, or, as others believe, to the cunning of the Illusionist, who has made this cathedral a prison.

    For there is one man who lives within its weathered walls. His days are spent in immaculate meditation, staving off hunger unsated and thirst unslaked. His nights are spent in agony, being tortured each sundown by an iron-boned gaoler. His every waking moment is spent plotting vengeance for his slain brother and liberation for his people.
