Coming soon, the thrilling 1st book of the saga

For centuries, Orders of Dark Knights have been the hand that rules the world in the shadows, deciding the fate of kings and states.

Quicksilver : a kingdom in the mountains, seized by Duke Darius.

Darius has sworn to take back the duchy that was once his father's. He is ready and about to strike ; he has prepared for war during 8 years. But before that, he must eliminate the rebellion that lurks in the mountains. A rebellion led by the legitimate heir to the throne, the child who escaped his grasp long ago.

At this very moment, a dark knight arrives at the gates of Quicksilver. He breaks a centuries-old custom, inspiring awe and fear among the people. Men-at-arms close in on him; he gets rid of them. Yet for centuries, the ancient Prophecy has warned ominously: no one must enter the city at the hour of the dead. What if he were the man of the Prophecy? The one who will shake the realm and bring war…

Unless a fearsome plan, designed years ago, is unfolding in the shadows…

A countdown begins, in which follow conspiracies, deceit and cinematic action against the odds.
