The White Oak, Clarendon’s oldest brothel, lured and destroyed men by the thousands. Fezariu was different. He had never been drawn by the White Oak’s vices but the brothel had still ruined him when he was just a boy. Salvation came in the form of the Merelax Mercenaries – Elenchera’s most prestigious hired hands. They gave Fezariu the chance to escape from his past. Immersed in the world of dangerous assignments in the colonies Fezariu longed to forget everything about his childhood but only in facing the past would he ever be free of it.
Fezariu’s Epiphany is a very well written, well-developed full story about self discovery of one’s self even when the truth has been in front of your nose the whole time.
Fezariu started as a loved and very lucky child, surrounded by those who cared for him greatly till one by one they were plucked from his life leaving him with a girl he grew up with. They relocated with their uncle across the seas to be cared for once again but Fezariu never felt the same. Empty in his daily chores, even with his childhood companion by his side he felt drastic change was needed in his life to rid him of a curse he believe he had on him that removed all that he loved. His adventure and growth began one night when Fezariu ran away without notice to join the Merelax Mercenaries.
Strongly developed characters, attention to detail and a perfect delivery of this adventure that lead Fezariu to his matured self, learning from a close friend and fellow Mercenary that his life belongs somewhere else even after all he did to escape his past.
I can’t pick one thing that I would change about the way Fezariu’s Epiphany was written. Though it may have been a little slow for me in the beginning, it quickly picked up and held me tight straight till the end.
I may just have to check back with David Brown and see what other writings he has available and add him to my list of favorites.
