The world as we know it has become a history hidden by layers of ash. The great Democracy of the Magistrates has spread itself far and wide. The sound of the anthem can be heard ringing across the desert wasteland. The promise of a world purified of the Red People, peals out from behind the High Magistrate's golden mask. The mantra: Civility, Justice, Strength, follows the metronomic march of the Black Boots as they police the Capital. Imprisoned as a traitor, Blum's one comfort is the memory of his beloved Isabelle, whose brutal execution haunts him in his waking hours and dreams. As the inferno burns within him, Blum makes an unholy pact, denouncing his mortal soul for an opportunity at vengeance. However, as his quest for revenge wages onward, he realizes that the price of his soul may not be enough to redeem her.

About Todd Riemer

From the red deserts of Morocco, to the dark, fogged in streets of London, Todd Riemer has traveled the world soaking in both landscape and history to create a tapestry of collective memory. When he writes, he pull constantly from this web of ideas—scraps of lectures, newspaper clippings, long-lost vistas, the sensation of a soft touch, the distinctness of foreign smells. He is concerned with stimulating all of the reader's senses, bringing to life the world and future he has constructed. Though disturbing and dystopian, his vision is one that brings out the essence of the human experience; the choice to fight oppression or to submit, the choice between what is right and what is wrong. His characters, like most of the people he has met in his journeys, are not so clearly defined. He chooses to examine their experience delving into the swirled gray shadows that exist between the world of good and evil.
