Bringer of Chaos: Origin of Pietas

On the day of impending peace talks with humans, Pietas, narcissistic leader of the immortal Ultras, must bow to the will of the mighty Council or face impeachment. As he suspected, the peace talks devolve into an inescapable trap.
Faced with the perma-death of his beloved mother and the destruction of his people, Pietas surrenders. Once imprisoned aboard a vessel bound for the edge of the galaxy, he finds an unlikely ally in the human to whom he surrendered.
How low has he fallen! He now has no choice.
Either he will 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…

Bringer of Chaos: Forged in FireBringer of Chaos Series #SciFi and #SpaceOpera

Exiled to a barren world with only a human for company, the immortal Pietas demands the mortal serve him.
When Six refuses and insists they are equals, Pietas is outraged. How dare a mortal refuse anything he requests?
But when he needs Six’s support to find and join his people, Pietas must learn to humble himself and ask for help–politely–and even more outrageous–request forgiveness. From a human.
For without aid, the immortal king might spend an eternity alone, never finding the people he has already died over a thousand times to save…

Lights Out (Ghost Corps)
(short story / anthology)

Bringer of Chaos Series #SciFi and #SpaceOpera

Lights Out – Bringer of Chaos prequel is included

He can save mankind. After he does one important thing. Die.
Join the Ghost Corps, they said. You’ll live forever, they said. You’ll save mankind, they said. They didn’t say that to do it, first he had to die.
When Tornahdo signs on the dotted line, he puts his life into the steady hands of the mighty Ghost Corps. Three grisly deaths and three agonizing resurrections later, he’s assigned duty on the space station Enderium Six.
He’s facing his most dangerous mission yet, the very reason the corps exists.
Do they expect him to win? Fat chance. Tornahdo and his team are already dead and this mission is codenamed “Lights Out.” No, there’s more to this than he can see.
To discover the truth, he must face an unbeatable, unkillable enemy, and this time–somehow–find a way to keep himself alive…

The words are on the screen, but you will want to hear the music and the voice actor. Zack's performance is exactly the way Pietas sounds in my head.
It's as if this video was filmed in my imagination and brought to life in reality. I can't wait to share it with you!

Ritual of Strength

I am Pietas.
First Conqueror.
War Leader of the Ultras.
As fire has victory over life, so I have victory over my enemies.
I am powerful, as fire is powerful.
I own the wind -- I prevail over the breath of my enemies.
Water submits to my presence the way enemies submit to my will.
The blood of my enemies trickles into the pool of time, is absorbed, and forgotten.
My body submits to my will.
No pain defeats me.
No fear touches me.
My will is absolute.
I am bigger than any fear.
I prevail in every circumstance.
I face every foe.
I vanquish every enemy.
I overcome.
I am indomitable.
I am invincible.

Want to meet Pietas in person? #MFRWhooks #SpaceOpera #CosplayTickets to Sempervia are pretty pricey this time of year. After all, the planet lies all the way across the galaxy. So if you want to meet Pietas in person, that’s a bit unlikely. However, how about getting to know the model who portrays him?

Meet Nik Nitsvetov, a Russian cosplayer whose face has graced books, posters and banners since I first discovered him in 2015. Here’s the story of how that happened. I must give a shout out to my friend and media assistant, Lisa Lowe, who lovingly but firmly insisted I could do this, even when I was terrifed to even approach Nik and ask. If it hadn’t been for her, I would never have had the courage. I’m such a fangirl over Nik that I was afraid I’d get his attention and then just stand there with my mouth open or worse, babble about how much I admire his work. LOL Lisa kept gently pushing me toward the door and finally–finally–I got up the courage to knock. I was floored when he said yes!

Check out the image above. On the left — that’s Nik in costume for an exotic photo shoot. On the right is his face when you zoom in to that same picture. Quite a surprise, isn’t it? Look at those soulful eyes and solemn expression. Click here to download a desktop sized image of the closeup on the right for your computer or tablet. It will open a very large image in a new window. Then, on a PC, right click. On a Mac, click and hold. When a dialog box opens, choose save or download. This is my own destop picture. Yes, I stare at Nik every day, all day. Purely as research for writing about Pietas, you understand. It’s tough writing about Pietas, but someone has to do it. *wink*Want to meet Pietas in person? #MFRWhooks #SpaceOpera #Cosplay

I’ve had the honor of getting to know Nik a little better over the last few months, and he has agreed to do a cosplay of Pietas. He has set up a location for a photo shoot, we’ve gathered costumes, ordered appropriate wigs, and made sure makeup is on hand. Nearly everything is ready. Only a few items remain.

Once those are in place and we have the date, Nik and his photographer (Julia) will stream the photo shoot live from Russia. I keep pinching myself when I think about this. I will have the chance to see my character walking around, living and breathing. I don’t know if my heart can take it!

My immortal king will make history. He’s dreamed of conquering the galaxy. He’s certainly conquered my heart. I’ve loved Pietas since forever and I adore Nik and Julia. I can’t wait to make this happen.

The art on the right is a drawing by my son, Jamin Allen, a graphic designer. The pose was modeled after Nik, who was posing as Cloud from Final Fantasy. That picture is in the Pietas coloring book.
