What is Fighting Treason?
Fighting Treason is a young adult epic fantasy. It’s inspired by my Libertarian views, consisting of anti-imperialism, anti-authoritarianism, anti-militarism, anti-police, anti-statism, pro-liberty, pro-nationalism, and small government.
However, Fighting Treason is much more than that.
It’s a story. There’s action, adventure, magic, and even paranormal activity in the work.
A story featuring two best friends from different backgrounds, from the highest and lowest of castes, again finding themselves in a state of misfortune.
But there’s more.
It’s a story featuring the main character showing the ability to bring themselves down to any level of society, despite their position in the upper caste.
Read on for the description.
What’s Fighting Treason About?
Fighting Treason is the story of two friends who find themselves in exile after getting framed for an assassination.
Knowing who’s really behind the assassination, the duo forms a small force, returning to the Kingdom to rid their land of incoming imperialists.
What About Themes?
Fighting Treason carries a hardcore anti-imperialist theme.
Once again, the rugged republic is challenged by an overbearing empire who acts as the police force of the world.
This empire is willing to do anything to overthrow patriotic leaders to usher in the imperial-backed hand puppets, similar to what the CIA does today as can be seen in the cases of Ukraine and Syria.
A secondary theme is the series overview, consisting of the series’ lowest characters playing an integral role in the story.
In fact, the main character, Seneca LaSalle, is one such character.
Despite her current place in society in the book, the girl has a dark, horrifying history which is seen in Fighting Treason’s predecessor, Fighting Tyranny, which can also be found for free on Prolific Works.
As mentioned, Seneca displays the ability to bring herself to different levels and it’s seen early as she bids goodbye to her commoner friends, treats her maid not only with respect but as a friend while finding her best friend, Prince Neo, rather annoying.
Seneca knows what it’s like to grow up in an oppressed state, as she’d done in her home country of Tamuria.
Now living in Ddraigoch (named after the Red Dragon, Y Ddraig Goch), Seneca’s living situation is now greater than ninety-nine percent of the population, but she’s constantly haunted by her dark history.
She’s the classic example of a girl who’s seen the bottom, and now she’s ready to see the top.
The Series’ namesake, Neo Skyehawk is the Crown Prince, Heir to the Ddraigoch Throne. Neo’s never been thrilled with his high-ranking position.
The founder of the sport shotball, Neo’s life’s ambition is to grow and spread his sport throughout the known world.
But like all Crown Princes, Neo has responsibility.
He’s forced to make appearances everywhere, lauded by the masses for no apparent reason, according to him.
Neo loves dressing like and blending in with commoners, wishing he was one of them, but noting once that his commoner friends long to be in his position, as Prince.
Despite Neo’s insistence on living the common man’s life, he’s always finding himself in terrible trouble and on the run with Seneca.
In Fighting Treason, Neo faces his toughest challenge yet when he’s exiled from his own nation.
We all have themes in our works. We have a message bleeding through the pages that hold true us.
Our themes are why we write and continue to release both short-length, as the Neo Skyehawk Series is, and full-length, as my Lord of Columbia Series has become.
So, go ahead, make the claim to the work and sign up for my email list for even more updates on how my works are coming, and on the continuity of spreading the message of liberty.
