The First Interstellar Empire of Mankind has been gone for 2000 years, but its legacy remains, scattered across the stars. On some worlds, civilization has collapsed. On others, mankind has thrived. On still others, humanity has died out, or mutated into forms that their ancestors would never recognize as human.
Illyria was intended by the Empire to be an incubator for the best soldiers in the galaxy, genetically engineered to be strong, fast, smart and aggressive. Thousands of years later, the people of Illyria relish competition of every sort, and playing games is in their blood.
In Meridien, the richest nation on Illyria, the greatest game of all is the Game of Life, and in the Game of Life, keeping score is simple. Status, riches and power mean that you’re winning. Free on Kindle.
