Story Synopsis


At twenty years of age, Lydia had been married early but happily. She had entered a privileged social class and enjoyed the opportunity of higher education, all through the blessings of a chance encounter.

However the joys of family proved fickle compared to the fate of states. After a mysterious horde from the east invaded her home country, Lydia’s entire life came crashing down. The brutality of war consumed noble bloodlines and peasant communities alike. Its holocaust of destruction reduced entire generations of men to fields of white bones.

For the first time in continental history, necessity pressed the conscription of women. Lydia unexpectedly found herself near the center of attention, where hope was rekindled through the rebirth of a military legend.

But no individual — however brilliant — could alter history on their own. A great reformation must begin, sweeping away old culture to bring about new ways. Victory or annihilation hung in the balance, though one fact stood for certain:

The roles and expectations of society would never stay the same.

  1. Can you tell how many years this took place before daybreak?Also were the vampire clans already purge during this so i can have an idea when this took place?

    1. Flowers takes place roughly a thousand years prior to Daybreak.
      Strangely enough I didn’t consider this until you asked… it’s after the purge against the vampire clans, though nowhere as long after (maybe only a century or two). I’ll need to nail that down before it becomes pertinent.

  2. I don’t know where the appropriate place to point this out is, but you have a text widget at the bottom of all pages that has default text 😉

  3. Hmmm so I’m not sure but I don’t think the Imperium of the Great Khan is the same as the Dawn Imperium so does that mean that Kannon had to bail the Samarans out twice by sending them a good general?

    Also I’m guessing somewhere between 500 and 1000 Imperial for this story.

      1. Uh yeah that’s why I said I wasn’t sure.

        If they’re the same I don’t understand where to place this on the timeline though. Is the timeline still correct or have you changed some stuff?

        Unless this is Chaos after all and that Emperor of the North guy wasn’t a Hyperborean I guess? My issue with that was the tech, although I am not actually familiar enough with either military history or engineering to truly say.

  4. Will this series have less of a focus on the magical elements of combat and more emphasis on “traditional” rank and file warfare? That’s the feel I’m sort of getting after the first read-through. I’m not sure if that’s because you intend for this specific POV, or magical combat isn’t as prevalent during this time on Hyperion.
