About The Book

In a world where mankind lives side by side with creatures of legend and myth, humanity turned out to be the real monsters, fearing, hating, and exploiting the race of magical Fey they once revered.

Into this twisted fairy tale world steps Nessa, a young woman harboring dark secrets and an even darker agenda—infiltrating the criminal underworld that stages Fey torture videos for streaming on the darkweb. TROJAN is a fantasy thriller full of wonder and horror in equal measure!

Once upon a time, we lived alongside Legends. Creatures of myth. Centaurs, fauns, gorgons, kelpies, gnomes, and more. They were spectacular. Majestic. Powerful. Peaceful. Pure. In comparison, we were ugly. Weak. Warmongering. Rotten. Is it any wonder we could not live alongside them any longer? After driving these Legends to the fringes of society, an uglier form of mythos takes shape in the form of rumors of live snuff shows for dark web high rollers. When a mysterious young woman, Nessa, enlists the help of a hacker to take a tour of the grisliest corners of the Dark Web, she sets in motion a war between those who peddle to mankind’s darkest fantasies and a world that transcends imagination. TROJAN is a fantasy thriller full of wonder and horror in equal measure.
