ALAS FOR CHIYADEN


It is a country of myths and demons, dragons and magic, a land long ruled by the spirits of wind and water.  Alas, its human sphere is not so benignly governed.  The old Emperor has died, and the heir is weak and timid.  Vicious Lord Ghita reigns from the Phoenix Throne, and once-peaceful Chiyaden drowns in blood...

Blood will find the Emperor's swordmaster, too, should he depart his mountain exile.  But Shoka vows to fight no more in a world which has forgotten justice.  Then one day a peasant who would take up the sword seeks him out, demanding justice - and revenge.  Will the legends that rise around them hold power enough to turn the battles ahead?

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
