A Tale of The Free: Corsair

by Brian Ruckley

Publication Date—Feb 08, 2016

A thrilling new novella about the daring exploits of the Free, the most feared mercenary company the world has ever known.

The Free are the most feared mercenary company the world has ever known. For years they’ve sold their martial and magical skills to the highest bidder, winning countless victories that have overthrown kings and shaken empires.

Yulan is a newcomer to their ranks, keen to prove himself worthy of the Free’s name. When corsair marauders ravage the Hommetic Kingdom’s coastline, Yulan gets his chance.

His mission is simple: travel to the corsairs’ island fortress, persuade their self-proclaimed king to sign a peace treaty, then head home with sword unbloodied.

Yet the crumbling fortress holds many secrets, and blades speak louder than words. Soon Yulan must fight not just for the glory of the Free, but for his very survival.
