The Serpent Chronicles

Book1: The Glory of Innocence

Prologue

They tell you that I am a tyrant; they are wrong. They tell you that I am insane; I think they are right. Most of my life was a nightmare that I don't care to relive. I wasn't born like this, you know. I, too, was once young and naive. I was happy then. I once could know love, but those days are gone, and nothing more than a memory. And those memories fade day by day.
