Raven Rebellion: A magical pirate goes to war
Captain Nereyda and her band of pirates are stranded in hostile territory without a ship after the Battle of the Mines. Desperate for help, Nereyda returns to Lord Devrim, hoping he has forgotten her past attempt to rob him. He offers his aid, but there is a price: Nereyda and the pirates must help Devrim topple the Cambisian Empire
As the rebellion fights to take cities and win over the populace, Nereyda explores new depths to the magical abilities she’s recently gained. However, her powers go against the teachings of the dominant religion in Cambisia, and she gains some unwelcome attention. Commander Erhan has started an Inquisition to apprehend Nereyda and punish her for stealing power from the gods.
Can the rebellion succeed before Erhan hunts down Nereyda?
“What do you think, Captain?” said Elvar, the old quartermaster, as he ran his hands through his graying beard.
“The crew isn’t ready for a fight. Keep them here and I’ll go see if I can talk to those guards.”
“What are you going to say?”
“I don’t know.” Nereyda shrugged and gave him a smile. “I’ll just use my irresistible charm.”
“That’s what I’m afraid of.”
Nereyda gave Elvar a wink and a pat on the shoulder, then swaggered down the road toward the bridge.
The guards wore forest-green tunics, with gleaming bits of chain mail showing at the collars. Swords hung from their belts. They leaned against the posts on either side of the bridge and focused more on their conversation with each other than the road.
As Nereyda approached the guards, they tensed up and reached for their swords. One of them, who had a clean-shaven face under his shiny helmet, asked, “Who are you? Why do you need to cross?”
Nereyda pushed her black hair out of her eyes and fixed him with her purple gaze. “We’re some tired travelers hoping to make it to the village ahead. You wouldn’t want to get in the way of loyal citizens of the Empire, would you?”
