Crimson

Benjamin Wise
Free sample

 I thought I had been abandoned into a world that despises my kind. Instead, today I find myself trapped in the center of a hidden war thought long ended; a bloody underground guerilla war between an oppressed psychic minority and violent government fanatics utterly opposed to my kind. 
Now I’m constantly on the run from those looking to kill me, searching for family I never knew existed in a world where morality is more black than white.
 

Set in the near future of an alternative world where those children born psychic are feared, abandoned and worse, Eve discovers she is different even to those psychic minority, as feared and hated within the psychic community, as she wears decades of historical blame based on barely remembered factional hatred. From the moment the first trigger is pulled, Crimson is an unrelenting exploration how in the face of pure evil, of black morality, the good guys aren’t always pure white. And any moment Eve tries to catch her breath she is quickly interrupted as she's driven toward the end.

About the author

Ben Wise was born in Sydney Australia but quickly abandoned the place for sunnier Queensland. He studied Software Engineering and Crimson started as an escape from the insanity of his job as a 29 year old programmer/solution architect. Work suffered as he enjoyed the many late nights narrating Eve's story far too much. Crimson is his first book.

“Stunningly good. Stupefyingly good.” —Patrick Rothfuss

Set in a phenomenally-built world in which lawyers ride lightning bolts, souls are currency, and cities are powered by the remains of fallen gods, MAX GLADSTONE's Craft Sequence introduces readers to a modern fantasy landscape and an epic struggle to build a just society.

Three Parts Dead — A god has died, and it's up to Tara, first-year associate in the international necromantic firm of Kelethres, Albrecht, and Ao, to bring Him back to life before His city falls apart.

Two Serpents Rise — Caleb Altemoc—casual gambler and professional risk manager—is sent by Red King Consolidated to cleanse shadow demons from the Dresediel Lex city water supply, and uncovers a scheme to forever alter the balance of power in the city.

Full Fathom Five — On the island of Kavekana, Kai nearly loses her life trying to save one of her creations, a god built to order. But when Kai starts digging into the reasons her creations die, she uncovers a conspiracy of silence and fear—which will crush her, if Kai can't stop it first.

Last First Snow — Craft lawyer Elayne Kevarian and warrior-priest Temoc must fight dark magic, secret agendas, and their own demons to save the peace between the citizens and rulers of Dresediel Lex, before hell opens to swallow the city whole.

Four Roads Cross — Protests rock the city of Alt Coulumb, Kos Everburning's creditors attempt a hostile takeover of the fire god's church, and Craftswoman Tara Abernathy must defend the church against the world's fiercest necromantic firm.
