Shield & Crocus Query
First Sentinel is getting old, and one of these days his damnfool crusade is going to get him killed. For fifty long years, he's lead a team of super-powered freedom fighters in a city besieged by magical storms and run by five infighting tyrants. He's lost the love of his life and countless friends in the fight, and most days he keeps himself running on guilt and rage. But now he faces a difficult choice. One of the tyrants--a gangster with deep pockets and no mercy--has come to him with a deal that would end the storms forever... an offer too appealing to dismiss.
First Sentinel and his team, the Shields of Audec-Hal, take the gangster’s bargain and launch a series of increasingly desperate missions to free the city. The Shields must drive a wedge between the tyrants, or the upcoming summit between the five will spell certain death for their rebellion.
Shield & Crocus is a 90,000 word fantasy infused with superhero action. If China Mieville wrote Astro City, the result would look like Shield & Crocus.
