(Book #1 The Legend of the Gate Keeper) Then the dance of blades began, each pair of arms whirling and pumping in an intricate series of thrusts and parries. Each appeared to have eight arms, as it seemed impossible only two could move with such tenacity! The steel-on-steel blows were so heavy that a shower of continuous sparks fired off in every direction. Each time the sky light up with a flash, it seemed like a portrait of violence; that exact moment frozen in time forever. This book is intended for mature audiences.

Three lit torches spread evenly around the oval room cast distorted shadows which danced across the gray stone floor, each one flickering with an invisible breeze that couldn’t be felt, threatening to extinguish the only light sources in the room. Only to barely come back to life again and repeat the process with the next unfelt breeze.
The warrior sat back against the cool stone and began to take in the whole scene. A room full of dead men who could not accept the cruel reality of their fate, was nothing more than an annoying distraction to him now as he tried to clear his head for the upcoming test of survival—a test he not only didn’t fear, but found a strange sense of exuberance and even acceptance for.
