Caught from the slums of a kingdom, a youth was sent into war.
As a slave soldier, he survived over a hundred battles. Using his own power, he regained his freedom. Using his achievements, he rose to the rank of general. He gained loyal followers, the praise of the people, and a warm home.
But when he thought he had everything he ever needed, he lost it all. The king he served sent him into a deathtrap, leading to the annihilation of all his troops. The ones he thought were his best friends killed his wife and child.
After discovering the truth, he tried to take revenge, only to lose to overwhelming numbers.
Watching the chopped up corpse of the "traitor" being pelted with stones by the public, he who was left with just his soul, came to one conclusion: "Humans are the source of all evil."
That was the prologue, and next is the story.
The "No One 17 and Under" rating for this novel is only due to blood and gore.
