Influences Behind Fighting Tyranny

Unlikely Friends. False Flag. A Race Against Time

Two friends from entirely different social classes team up in this one, to take on the tyrannical Tamurian Monarchy.

Care for a description? Check this out:

Unlikely Friendship. False Flag. A Race Against Time.

Neo Skyehawk and his best friend Seneca LaSalle couldn’t have come from more different backgrounds. While Neo was raised as an Heir to the Crown in Ddraigoch, Seneca hails from the most despised political class in the oppressive land of Tamuria.

 
Now living with Neo’s royal family, Seneca reiterates to Neo her single condition to remain in Ddraigoch: To rescue her parents from Tamuria’s clutches.

 
Upon sneaking into Tamuria, the duo discover Ddraigoch traders are held captive by the Tamurians, falsely accused of spying and are subsequently executed. After further observation, they find the Tamurians are leveraging accusations as a false flag to launch a sneak attack on Ddraigoch.

 
Fighting Tyranny is the first book in the Neo Skyehawk series. If you like sword and sorcery, short action thrillers, unlikely friendships, and fantasy, Fighting Tyranny is for you.

 
Join Neo and Seneca on their adventures today.

 
As mentioned above, Fighting Tyranny is Book One in my Neo Skyehawk Series, a novella series which acts as a prequel series to Lord of Columbia. I initially created Neo Skyehawk’s story to be a standalone e-book as a gift to those who join my email list, entitled ‘The Eurean Kingdom’. Upon completing the work, I loved it so much I decided to create a second one, well, the first in the series itself, Fighting Tyranny, available for free on Kobo, Nook, Scribd, Playster, and other e-book outlets, soon to be available on Amazon and iBooks.

 

Influences Behind Fighting Tyranny

Like Lord of Columbia, Fighting Tyranny contains an anti-imperialistic background. As mentioned above, two friends from different social classes team up to take on a corrupt Monarchy threatening military intervention to expand its imperial fist.

 
Also like Lord of Columbia’s first book, Northern Knights, Fighting Tyranny is action-packed, dialogue-heavy, and much of the magical systems seen in Northern Knights are also present. Characters Northern Knights mentions in passing are central to Fighting Tyranny’s plot, linking the two series’ together.

 
My main purpose behind Fighting Tyranny is to continue to spread my belief of non-intervention, and that the only defense any nation must utilize should be to protect its own borders from within. It reinforces the idea that all nations in a conquest for empire ultimately fail in such a conquest, the American Empire being no different.

 

Ron Paul’s What If Speech

One of my favorite speeches of all-time rang through my mind when creating Fighting Tyranny. Questions like ‘What if war is a racket,’ ‘What if the American people woke up and realized all wars are based on lies and only serve special interests,’ and ‘What if animosity toward America is directly related to its interventionist foreign policy,’ among others, were ones I repeated when creating the work.

 
If you haven’t heard this legendary speech, which is roughly four minutes in length, head over to YouTube and type it into the search bar. It’ll give you goosebumps just hearing the passion in Ron Paul’s voice.

 
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll realize I’m a hardcore non-interventionist and as anti-war as one can get unless an enemy is sending warships at our coasts, has warships in the Gulf of Mexico, or are building bases in Canada, Cuba, or Mexico.

 

Conclusion: Don’t Fire Unless Fired Upon

Despite the fact both Northern Knights and Fighting Tyranny are war-driven, each battle takes place for defense purposes, in other words, they’re fighting off imperialism.

 
In real life, I continue to insist America hasn’t had a legitimate reason for going to war since The War of 1812. The subsequent War with Mexico, War of Northern Aggression, Spanish-American War, America’s entry into World War I (believe it or not, I’m related to Woodrow Wilson, so there’s some family animosity here!), America’s Entry into World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the First Gulf War, the War in Afghanistan (yes, really), the Second Gulf War, the War in Libya, and the War in Syria. And now, Trump’s beating war drums with Iran.

 
If you haven’t seen my previous posts on America’s failed foreign policies, be sure to check them out; I actually just had a biggie post on this released last evening.

 
America’s legitimate wars? Revolutionary War. And as mentioned earlier, War of 1812. The others are all based on lies that I’ll likely cover more in this blog, as again, both of my works carry a heavy anti-interventionist message.
