Battle is an Art by Thomas Loud

Recompense Shall Be Paid 

Herah always considered herself a master artist, be it a painting, sculpture, drawing or whatever, Herah could make it without problem.

Combine this with her gift to make her art into a reality, her great combat prowess and her immense amounts of willpower, and this meant Herah was clearly a no-brainer to participate in Recompense; a series of acts that if one won would grant the winner(s) a wish from their Maker.

Of course, with such a great prize on the line that there was an equal price which had to be paid. This meant that other participants, hostile environments, and pretty much all sentient life that wasn’t herself would definitely be challenges that Herah would have to overcome to not only win but to survive. Recompense truly was a battle of the fittest.

But with a broken No.2 pencil, a nervous master smith, a too trusting liar and an honest, omniscient jackass, Herah had Recompense in the Bag.

After all, Herah was a master artist, and she considered battle exactly that: an art.

Note: Battle is an Art contains pervasive harsh language; also, some graphic violence.

A serialized novel, updating fortnightly
