The One-Eyed King
Cover in category: 'Fiction' > 'Young Adult'
In the year 2020, a nuclear war, perpetrated by a ruling entity known as 'The ARK,' devastated Earth, laying over half the planet to waste. Today, in 2029, the 'future' is dark. Every 6 to 18 months, a mushroom cloud envelopes a newly discovered resistance movement located in one of the world's once-great cities. These underground pockets of humanity are hiding out around the globe as The ARK actively seeks to wipe all of them out. Its ruler, The Anchor, and his Superiors are ruthless and rule the world with an iron fist.
Everything changes, when a mysterious stranger from a sightless boy's visions appears at his orphanage. Like Iori, this menacing man is blind. He reveals that he and Iori are connected, claiming the boy is the legendary One-Eyed King of the Land of the Blind, and is destined to lead their 'All-Seeing Army' to bring about the end of The ARK and the world of those able to see. Iori is forced against his will to go with the warrior. Will Iori fulfill this sinister prophecy? Will the would-be One-Eyed King turn his back on humanity and lead this powerful mystic army against the world he was once a part of?
