Leader of Hundreds

The Tal Ra Scrolls, Book 1

All Marron wanted was to stay out of the limelight. To continue his busy, humdrum work with his weaving friend, Alani, and then visit his friends Bareis and Kayur at the end of the day for a round of betting.

However, both past and future keep trying to pull him back into the life he left behind. The one where he served as one of twenty generals in the Royal Zeoian Army. As tensions rise in his village between the Zeoians and the superpowered ‘Tal-Ra’ or ‘people born yesterday’, Marron has no choice but to trade his peaceful existence and re-enter the arena of his nightmares – once a leader, always a leader.
