The Darkest Autumn

"The Darkest Autumn" by Daniel Roy Greenfeld

| Facebook | Heroes are supposed to be brave, aren't they? Vetch is training to be a knight in a magical world. But he's afraid of battle and reluctant to hurt others. He's also nervous around girls. He's kept his fears from his friends but knows at some point he'll be revealed for the coward that he is. Led by a sorcerer, a massive army of men and inconceivable monsters attack Vetch's homeland.

Those who remain seem to operate on opposite ends of the moral spectrum.
