If you are a fan of sci-fi then here is a treat for you. We have an exclusive prologue to ‘Ronin‘ by Jan Domagala, which is the first in a series called ‘Col Sec’.
At birth, Mother called me Travesty. Travesty, a name meaning disaster. I could have given me a name which stood for something like great warrior, defender of the faith, or beautiful boy. She could have named me after somebody famous, but no, she called me Travesty. To Mother, I was a disaster. This was the world I entered. But, I should not have entered. Between you and me and the gatepost, I wasn’t meant to arrive. I was an accident. A disastrous accident, a travesty.
