Rise of Ahrik

Available Now!

The story of Ahrik, a young military officer with a distant wife, a disloyal brother, and a secret army of clones sworn to defend women’s rule

Ahrik commanded ten thousand secret clones, and he refused to feel guilty about it. Whispers of war hung on the air. Lazy, contented civilians complained about women’s rule. Rebels armed themselves for war cross-planet. He didn’t have time to feel special. He didn’t have the luxury to question his duty.

Then Ahrik went to war and he learned that duty comes with a terrible cost.
