Deep with the cozy kingdom of Daeton, among the generation-old farmlands and villages, a young farmer’s daughter stumbles upon a dead man. His elaborate clothing has been torn to ribbons, yet his skin remains unblemished. His face is peaceful, and tucked into the hand lying across his chest can be seen a solitary playing card.

This is my third novel on Royal Road, the first being “Beyond the Horizon’s Eye“, and the second being “The Dawnfire Archives“. This story is something of a test in a new genre, that of CardLIT.

It does, however, contain several ties between the stories.
