War has shaped the world of Denestia. War over religion. War over magic. A magic wielded by the greatest heroes and villains, by kings and commoners, by the righteous and the evil, by believers and heretics. A magic, that in the end, corrupts men, drives them mad, and kills them. But without that magic, Denestia would have fallen to the monstrosities of the shade long ago.
Now, after the Tribunal’s Ashishin defeated the shade in the War of the Shadowbearer, and sealed away the monsters, a long period of peace under Streamean worship has ensued. Until the day the shade’s monsters mysteriously appear. And the Shadowbearer’s name is whispered from Ostania to Granadia to the very halls of the Tribunal’s Iluminus.
The winds of war blow once more. Swords must be brought to bear. Magic must be taken up again. Wielded to its full, frightening capability despite so much that has been forgotten and surrendered. But the minds of men are fragile things. Death and madness await.
Can a legendary killer without a memory, a gifted student who has lost his way, a vengeful assassin on an impossible mission, an old mentor whose only wish is to save her people, unite the kingdoms and walk the knife's edge of harmony to control a power meant for the gods?
The nobility executed his mother. They treat his people like livestock. Now, they hunt him for his magic.
Young Keedar is a dreg, the lowest of the low, a descendant of a dead civilization. From 3 years old, his father has trained him in the art of soul magic, trained him for the day the guilds rebel, the day their people rise up, the day they reclaim what is theirs, the day of retribution.
That day has come.
The path to vengeance begins with Count Ainslen's son, Winslow. But can Keedar survive Ainslen's secret assassin, the Noble Houses' assault on his father's consortium of guilds, and the invasion of the most barbarous of enemies?
Meet Rayder White, who is suddenly and mysteriously taken from his home and placed in an unfamiliar, hostile world.
How will Rayder fare in this new, unfamiliar world, where magic and monsters are not fantasy, but facts?
People are born, live, and die.
It is only after death that the door to second chances open.
It is only after death, that one can Bloom.

Pain and suffering make a man strong or so they say, it makes us wonder. The people who have started this saying how much have they been through, did they have fingernails torn to shreds under their desperate attempts to escape? Did they attempt to rip out their own throats simply to escape their painful existence? Did the hunger and thirst gnaw a hole through their bodies until indescribable pain became the norm? We think these people do not know what they are talking about, throwing around words that sound pleasant.
We are The Irregulars.
We are born from pain, hatred our sustenance and suffering our armour.
And we WILL have our vengeance.

Dany , an unlucky highschooler and a net game addict , get dragged to the filming of a VR movie in the real world , turning his life to the worst way he never had imagined
Peaceful and idyllic, harsh and painful.
In a continent ravaged by magic yet built by it, where strength and brains were equally important, where peace was never far off and war loomed just around the corner, where walls were built as easily as bridges, four warriors stood.
Fate awaited them, for they were the ones who would change the world.
But for better or for worse was to be seen.
The board of directors of Swarm Entertainment had been working on a singular goal for nearly ten years when the breakthrough had come. Since the first consumer release of VR systems, many had realised that the future of VR gaming would always be total immersion, but very few had thought along the same lines as Swarm Entertainment. The singular goal of Swarm was to eventually create a world where the physical restrictions of the human body would no longer apply. If a person was in a wheelchair, they would be able to walk. If a person was blind or deaf, they would be able to see or hear. If a person chose to do so, they could escape their nursing home into a new life where they could enjoy anything and everything they could have ever wanted – this was the main goal behind creating Eden and the possibilities were absolutely endless.
This story follows William, a clever man who had led the development team for six years and been handed the pleasure of entering the virtual world of Eden and its virgin lands before any other human being. He would be the first visitor to unknown computer-generated lands but he won't be welcomed with adoration.
Please note that there will be no harems or sexual fantasies lived out through this book!
