A simple mistake with tragic consequences.
A country falling apart from the top down. Riots stalk the streets. Science and law are suffocating myth and religion.
Corporal Rick Franklin is torn away from his young family, and sent to a ruined castle on Aijlan’s restless border. While helping monitor a terrorist threat, he makes a terrible mistake.
His mistake is buried, and Rick becomes a reluctant hero for a president that is soon overthrown. As he tries to ensure his family’s safety, and deal with the persistent advances of an old lover, Rick stumbles across the murderous truth behind the Silk Revolution.
Part political thriller, part dystopian fiction, part tragic love story, Aijlan is a riveting page-turner where intrigue and suspense dance with loyalty and betrayal.
Will Rick Franklin walk the easy path, or risk everything for what he knows to be right?

About the Author
I’m a British born author now living in the heart of Europe. Writers I enjoy reading include: George Orwell, Hugh Howey, Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, and G.R.R. Martin. Outside of writing (and chasing after my two young kids), I’m an award winning bass player, osteopath, and teacher.
‘The Lords of Misrule’ is the culmination of a long held (and well-hidden) ambition to write. It’s a dystopian story set in an alternative version of 21st century Europe. It has a large cast of characters, and pulls in various interests: science vs. belief, myths & legends, pain, political intrigue, and deadlifts.
