America’s democracy is ruined by the corruption of politicians and the addiction to power by very rich elitists who wish to control everyone they can and destroy everyone they can’t. The country is torn apart by ideological and partisan fanaticism to the point five separatist groups form in an attempt to secede from the United States.
But unlike Abraham Lincoln in the days of the Confederates and a North versus South battle for preservation of the union, America’s last president is too weak to muster any relevant strategy to unite the fracturing states. As a result, the United States plunges into its second civil war, with five different groups of states fighting for their own sovereignty. The president empowers General Asilas Roman to put together a strategy and reunite the country before descending into oblivion.
The war rages for nearly two years before it ends in a bloody series of high level assassinations. For the citizens of the country, simply ending the war at any cost is the only acceptable outcome. Every major city in every state was suffering from the war and millions of Americans lay dead. It’s the most devastating, crushing loss of life people have ever seen on American soil. General Asilas Roman puts an end to the war and is celebrated in the streets for many days on end.
While people were celebrating, a great shift in the government was taking place. Unbeknownst to the public, all of the senators and congressmen were arrested and taken to undisclosed locations (and later murdered). While the elation of the end of the war was setting in, a transfer of power was happening that would change America forever. The president spoke to the people late one evening to inform them he would no longer be president. The country would change to a monarchy and General Asilas Roman would become “King Asilas.”
Although the notion of a king was confusing at first, it was the reality democracy in America was now gone that struck many people as they took their frustrations and disagreements to the streets. Unlike the days of free speech, King Asilas did not have to answer to a constitution and understood very early on he could not be perceived as weak. Protesters and dissidents were arrested, punished harshly or simple murdered in the streets until order was restored. Eventually, the public accepted King Asilas and the new America. They accepted it all when life began changing as more and more people found themselves wealthier and healthier than they ever were before. Most learned to love the king and would fight to defend the kingdom to the death. And America became the most powerful nation the world had ever seen.
There was a cost for this prosperity. There were many secrets kept from the public. The king had to protect the nation not just from its human enemies, but from non-human enemies as well. This is the story about the darkness that exists in the shadows of power. The men and women who deceive the people of the world with the use of distractions, such as the wielding of power by a king or a government, do so with the most horrifying intentions. When King Asilas learns he is a pawn in this sinister and ancient plot, he turns the tides and engages in a battle for his country and his soul.
