The Abyss Stares Back

It has been thirteen years since the dissolution of the Confederacy of Eastern Stars by the famous general S. Schezerade of the New Republic. His story has entered the annals of time, though not without significant distortion on the parts of his friends and enemies. His true compatriots, his fellow members of Black Two who joined him in his assassination of Grand Hegemon Porrick Dillidj, know the truth. Sharif Schezerade, son of the Republican hero, is just now coming of age in what seems to be an era of great peace. But greater things are lurking behind the veneer of prosperity, and hidden truths will soon come to light…..

Cut down in his prime, the boy who would be king, Sharief Schezerade, is forgotten by his comrades. The Confederacy rises again, undoing all of the feats Sharif and his glorious father were able to pull off before they went down in their respective blazes of glory. S.'s transgressions are laid bare before the worlds, and the Schezerades can never recover. But…there is another. Sharif, before his death, had fathered a son…..
