In 120 A. D. Emperor Hadrian’s Black Legion swept across Sarmatian lands, killing thousands in an attempt to quell growing unrest among the proud warrior descendants of the fabled Amazons and bring peace to a wounded Roman Empire. Grace Alexa was an 8 year old girl when the Legion came and murdered her entire family, mistaking her unconscious form for dead as they continued with their bloody quest. When she awoke, Grace swore a horrible oath on the graves of her entire tribe: She would avenge their deaths with the heads of every man in the Black Legion. Armed with her father’s broken axe and little else, Grace set out to fulfill her promise, no matter what the cost.
Grace is a period story about survival, vengeance, and overcoming impossible odds. Written and Created by Cary Kelley, with stunning fully painted art work by Daniele Serra. Look for the 8 page preview in the forthcoming Red Handed Sampler coming in 2011!
