Welcome to the end of human intelligence, the functioning brain completely eradicated by the Himalayan virus known as "Lasactka". The ignorance of civilization deceived them all with the deadly promise of limitless knowledge and undeniable intellect. Instead, Lasactka was designed to successfully achieve the exact opposite, draining the mental capability of humanity and reducing them to mental oblivion. We all want to be a vessel of wisdom. However, how many of us will actually put in the work to achieve that, and how fatal will we go to reach that prominence if it means never having to lift a finger?
Imagine a world where everyone is the same. Ordinary people look and behave just like celebrities and influencers. The lower class shares the same privileges and consequences as the upper class. There is no separation among people and no isolation among cliques. No conflicts. No competition. No envy. A world where there is complete freedom to do anything and everything without consequences. A world where morality is forbidden and driven by unspoken rules of commonality. Imagine a world where differences and personalities become extinct. Imagine a world where conscience and emotions create destruction and death.
Guilt, the venom running through humanity's veins,
The cancer eating mankind's soul.
Death, both courted and earned, well-fed upon denial.
Balanced on the delicate edge between madness and damnation, clarity comes to us all.
There is one thing more terrifying than the darkness at the edge of your vision staring back.
The seed of that darkness peering from within your heart.
What is real? What is imagined?
Right, or wrong, the price of your answer is your soul.

WHEN A TEMPEST IS MORE THAN A VIOLENT STORM
When the touch of a demonic force starts to create imbalance, two great divine beings decide to create a cure. A child aptly named "Tempest". At fifteen cycles, her care is entrusted to the Sword Master of Eerikki. His task is to train her to become an Elite Warrior in her own right.
Elite Warriors are renowned for their Immense Size, Strength and Battle Skills. They are the best of the best and all sworn to the service of the Goddess and protectors to the realms of MarDav.
Tempest suddenly finds herself surrounded by other warrior trainees on the practice fields; only two challenges, she is neither 6ft, nor male.
Tempest may have been gifted with immortal abilities but will she live long enough to control her immortal gifts and become an Elite Warrior. Or will the Dark Lord Arawn and his mortal agents destroy "The Panacea" meant to bring equipoise back to MarDav?
"The Tempest of Eerikki" is the first book of The Panacea Quest Series of epic tale of battle-hardened warriors,
fanatical dishonoured zealots, divine
intervention and the coming of age of
the greatest gift.
Not all gifts are a blessing. Some are a curse.
When Amelia turned 12, she began growing pearls. Every month, a crop of beautiful pearls bursts from the skin on her back. Her mother, Denise, believes her daughter is blessed, and sells the pearls to put food on the table. Amelia sees her condition as a curse. As the pearls form, her body aches and her skin grows feverish. The harvest of pearls brings temporary relief from the pain, but leaves her back marred by scars. Denise hides Amelia away from the world, worried that Amelia's gift will be discovered and she will be abducted for the wealth she can provide. Now a young woman, Amelia realizes she has become her mother's captive, and plans her escape. When she runs away from home, she finds a new family in a troupe of performers at a museum of human oddities. She soon discovers the world is much more dangerous than her mother feared.
