The story is a Dark Fantasy series set in the dark and fantastical Land of Korannah. In the series, Aaron must face a series of events that call into question his belief in Honor and his God and the abhorrent nature of war.The Crusader is the first novella in the series.Aaron, on a Crusade to rid the Holy Land from unbelievers and their sorcerers, must face the truth of the Crusade and decide between losing himself and losing his soul.Quotes from The Crusader:“Honor is a thing not defined by your actions, but by your survival. If you survive and— praise to The God—emerge victorious, you may set the standards of Honor yourself”“My best choice was not girding up in steel and wading honorably into the fray. My best chance of survival was skulking in the dark, killing without mercy an unprepared enemy. My best chance was with the Dark Men.”“Aggressive action won battles did it not? But move to strike what? Where there should have been an enemy, there was complete blackness. I saw nothing. I heard nothing.”“Perhaps I could gain favor, or treasure, in my travels here. Another load of shite. Most died in this hole of piss. Those that didn’t die returned back wealthy in stories of courage and Honor and battle, but little else.”“I spat into his face—a time tested tradition of defiance. There was nothing left of which to be afraid. I was already dead.”
