The 5th Worlde Sagas ~ Episode 1
From The Devil We Came
The empire stretches across the worlde map, pink ~ like the blotches on a drunkards face.
‘From The Devil We Came’ is the first book of the 5th Worlde trilogy. An epic page-turner that combines the stories of the Dark Books of the Forbidden Library, and from which you can unfold the swashbuckling adventure.
A young Sir Thomas Henry Valentine Deveroux spies for the empire, under the guise of being one of the great literary minds of the age, but he is having trouble finishing his latest novel. His mother bullies him, his father has disinherited him, and his lover is a known witch and Freethinker.
An old college acquaintance is then murdered, his mentor is kidnapped, and a smuggler finds a body in Camden Lock, whilst his loyalty is torn between the Templars, the Empire, and the Crown. Deveroux struggles with his emotions, the Cultural Laws, the Inquisition, the Witchfinder General, and meets a beautiful Chinese girl.
And chaos erupts around him.
And so begins the hunt for the lost treasure of the T'Ang. Epic high fantasy in a broken worlde, of plots, high treason, intrigue, murder, war, torture, witchcraft and true love.
