In “All Light and Darkness” (Book 1 of the Menschklik trilogy), Leiden strives to abandon his violent past with the Wahren Reichmilitz by deserting, but when he meets Sara, a refugee with her own shadows, knowing what to leave behind becomes difficult. His violent past goes much deeper than he ever knew, and it draws bigger trouble than he imagined existed. With monsters and demons on his tail and trouble ahead, Leiden must make a choice: preserve Sara’s courageous light at the cost of his freedom, or do what he’s always done–leave. What will it be, her life or his humanity? And what comes after the choice is made?
