Ultras are immortals in books by Kayelle Allen. There are at least four factions, each called something different.

Zachary Johnson - Pietas voice

 

 

 

Audiobook narrator by day, math tutor by night. And day. Dynamic, confident, commanding. Wry wit for the written word.

Listen to Zachary and he'll narrate short stories, upcoming novels, cinematic trailers, and when time finally permits, some voice acting videos.

And if you want to talk audiobooks, check out his website www.zachjvo.com

Zachary performed the first five chapters of Ring of the Dragon on his YouTube channel, and his talent and insight into Pietas astonished me. I am excited to work with him on new projects as well.

Zachary's performance of Pietas in Ring of the Dragon matches the immortal king's snarkiness as well as intelligence.

 

Thank you!

You helped Ring of the Dragon reach #94 in the top 100 on Amazon. Considering there are millions of books on that site, this is amazing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Down a little ways, you'll find 2 gifts from Stormsinger and me! I hope you enjoy them.

Below, left - the product information for the book from its page on Amazon. The rankings are at the bottom. #94 is a huge impact. I'm super excited. I did a little happy dance right here in my office when I saw it.

Below right - I put Surrender Love (Dragon's prequel) up for free Apr 15-16, and it hit #2 on the free list in more than one category. Nice thing is, Wulf (which is permafree) was right there with it at #4. Having 3 books in the top 100 on Amazon at the same time is a dream come true. Thank you so much for helping me accomplish that!

Ring of the Dragon by Kayelle Allen

Luc, whose immortal name is Cyken, has just laid down the law to Pietas -- the immortal king himself. Brazen and bold, but Luc wants his freedom and he fears Pietas will never let him have it. Now he's dealing with the king's reaction.

"How dare you come in here and--"

"Please." Cyken lifted both hands. "I didn't come here to pick a fight."

"A little late for that."

"All I wanted was for you to acknowledge the truth. You know that."

Pietas laid a hand over his torn heart. "No, here's what I know. You think me unworthy. You suckered me into thinking you cared about me. You touched me when you knew I longed for you. You used my love for you to protect the one who stole you from me. You--" He turned away. "You violated every trust I ever put in you. That's what I know."

A blockade of silence between them filled the room.

Cyken came up close behind him and set one hand on Pietas's shoulder.

"No." He turned, backed away from the man's warmth. "Do not touch me. Don't you ever touch me again."

"My king." Cyken performed a Sempervian salute. "I have served you for too many centuries for you to doubt my loyalty. All I wanted was for you to admit Izzorah is immortal. One of us. You told me you created him with your own hands. I came here because I needed you to admit there's no sense in killing him. I want you to tell the whole truth about that."

Cyken wanted truth? Here was truth.

Pietas would stab a blade deep into the gut of the man who'd stolen Cyken's heart. Twist it. Tear him apart. Rip off Izzorah's head and destroy him so completely he could never resurrect.

How could Pietas have been so foolish? Why had he held onto hope he could win Cyken back? Why had he longed for Cyken to see the man Pietas truly was? The man who loved him beyond all reason. The man who was terrified of losing him.

Because facing eternity without Cyken at his side...

Pietas turned away, arms crossed, head down.

An exiled immortal king must contend with the most dysfunctional family since forever.

Forged in Fire Excerpt

In this scene from Bringer of Chaos: Forged in Fire, the not-quite-human Six offers water to the immortal king, Pietas.

Six slid their canteen off over his head and held it out to Pietas.
Accepting anything from a human, an altered one at that, had violated every instinct at first. To take from an enemy, yes. Always. Let one give you something as if you needed it? Admit a weakness before an enemy?
Never.
But this was Six.
Pietas took it.
Ultras could go days without water, but they consumed it when they had it. He wiped one dusty hand across his mouth. The satisfaction of assuaged thirst never failed to please. What simple things in life brought pleasure! In captivity, he'd dreamed of even a drop to cool his tongue. He'd sworn he'd never take water for granted again.
Six had offered it to their companions during the climb, but the entire lot refused anything a mortal's lips had touched. Yes, Six was a quasi-immortal. A dead human soldier who'd been resurrected and enhanced with Ultra blood. A "ghost." But to the others, that gave him even less status.
Pietas wavered on few things, but on this? Should he call the man human, mortal, quasi-immortal, or ghost? He'd elected to choose as the mood struck. But one in particular annoyed Six.
"Thanks, ghost." He thrust the canteen against Six's chest.
Staggering, he swore in Spanish. "Find another name for me."
"Tell me your mortal name then."
"You know I can't." Six scratched his cheek. "Gotta protect my family. If your kind knew who they were, they'd slaughter them. You wouldn't, but them?"
Now they were getting somewhere. "So you do trust me?"
"Pi, there's more honor in your left big toe than your entire race combined." He tipped up the canteen but then paused. "No offense."
"None taken. But we're stranded, my friend. Unless a miracle happens, by the time we get off this world, your family will be long dead." He added, "No offense."
Six finished his drink and plugged the canteen. "None taken. Sorry. Can't do it." He lifted the strap back over his head and settled it onto his shoulder, the canteen at his back. "Seriously, Pi, your people hear you call me you-know-what, it'll give away I was Ghost Corps. We both know what they'll do to me."

Origin of Pietas: Bringer of Chaos by Kayelle Allen

 

Origin of Pietas: Bringer of Chaos
Universal book link (find it anywhere available) https://books2read.com/u/4DovO7
Books in this series include Forged in Fire, and Lights Out. Links below.

On the day of impending peace talks with humans, Pietas, leader of the immortal Ultras, must bow to the will of the mighty Council or face impeachment. As suspected, the talks devolve into an inescapable trap. Faced with the destruction of his people, Pietas surrenders. Once imprisoned, he finds an unlikely ally in a human. Pietas will either doom his people to exile and face the end of his own immortality, or place his faith in that which he most hates. A human...

Origin of Pietas Excerpt

In this scene, Pietas experiences an unfamiliar situation -- a friend who has his back. It begins with Pietas speaking.

"My father would get so angry with me, Six. He'd say it under his breath, but I heard. He'd call me useless. I say that about myself."

"How can you think of yourself as useless? You're the most powerful Ultra ever created. Everybody knows that."

With a twitch of his fingers, Pietas dismissed the praise. "It is not how I feel. If I were telepathic, I could have found my people by now. If I were telepathic, I wouldn't have gotten us marooned on an alien world. No, my father was right. When it comes to telepathy, I am useless."

"Wow." Six tossed part of a small branch onto the fire, sending sparks spiraling upward. "Biggest pity party I've ever been to."

Pietas leaned on one hand to face Six. "What is a pity party?"

"When you feel sorry for yourself and expect others to do the same thing 'Poor me. Look how I'm suffering.' That's a pity party."

"Excuse me for sharing how I felt."

"You were doing fine, until you said you were useless. I don't care who told you that. It's a pure out-and-out lie and you know it. To let anybody else's opinion of you keep you from being your best..." Six threw down the stick. "Look, Ultra. That's not you, okay? Listen to me. I sat with you while you were nothing but two big blue eyes, and blackened skin stretched over bones. You couldn't lift your head, you were so weak. You tried not to show how much pain you were in, but I could see it. I could hear it in the way you panted, trying to breathe. The way you hobbled about as if all your bones were broken. But you fought like a caged animal to get your strength back. I will never accept any lie about you being useless. You're one of-- No, you are the strongest person I've ever known."

The pride at those words from so dear a friend--a human friend--brought tears to his eyes. Pietas turned his head, and blinked them away.
