The man who thought he would live forever is running out of time.
For three thousand years, Deckard Riss has been alone. Ever since his home sunk into the sea with Atlantis, he has been the last of his people. The final Atlantean knight, the last Archon.
Then fate forced an apprentice on him, and now the pair of them police the streets of Atlanta, magicians in hiding as superheroes.
Now there are whispers of Atlantis on the wind, another sorcerer at work. This unknown dark wizard sacrifices superpowered teenagers in grisly ritual suicides. And Deckard’s magic, once so easily accessed, starts slipping beyond his grasp.
If he doesn’t have his powers, he can’t stop the rending of reality to allow monsters into our world. If he doesn’t have his powers, he is nothing.
Deckard only has to hold on for another year. Just one more year, to train his apprentice to take his place, and stop the end of the world. And he’s not sure he can do it.
Will his apprentice step up to save the world, or will he drive the boy away with his secrets?
Doctor Strange meets HP Lovecraft in this new Heroes Unleashed series about wizards, prophets and superheroes in Atlanta.
Can Deckard find the mysterious sorcerer, stop the portal from opening, and prepare his apprentice to take his place before his time runs out?

Too Christian for Mainstream Publishing, Too Secular For Christian Publishing.
We occupy the space between both. Life isn't simple or free of trials, so why should fiction be?
We're not a "Christian Publisher". You'll find no limp-wristed, sanitized and boring fiction meant to browbeat readers into conversion.
Harkening back to Lewis, Tolkien, we aren't afraid to express our beliefs in the context of the story while keeping the creativity and wonder of speculative fiction. Faith has real power, in our world and in our books, and ignoring or being condescending about it leaves an entire facet of the human condition on the table.
There is no victory without trial, no dawn without night, and to write without that produces flat and uninspiring stories.
So if you're tired of nihilistic fantasy that revels in the worst of humanity, science fiction without the hope and wonder, adventure stories without heroes, Silver Empire is the publisher for you.
