Rihou Royaltine expected his eighteenth birthday to be somewhat unremarkable. Enjoy a traveling circus' entertainments, and then head off to join the Foresalia Army and follow in his late father's footsteps. Things don't quite go to plan as first a dancing bard captivates his heart, and then training at the Army's camp ends in massacre—a betrayal from within the Army itself. When Rihou wakes up from his escape, he's in another country, war is brewing, and his entire world has been torn apart. Lucky for him that he was rescued by Ewan Grizmar, a veteran of the war within the Republic of Taron. Unlucky for Ewan, one look into Rihou's eyes tells the swordsman things he didn't want to know: the eternally cheerful combatant is another Kaiten Star.
Madness brews and boils inside the Foresalia Kingdom and threatens to consume it and the City-States of Arinsberg alike. Only a hero like a Kaiten Star has the ability to unify the two lands, heal the wounds wrought by evil, and put an end to an unwanted war. Rihou will have to walk a path walked before, but he won't be alone. Destined Stars old and new will gather at his side, and his Kentei Star will hold him together even when his iron will threatens to break.
Gifted with a great power, burdened by eternity, and beholden to Destiny, can Rihou rise up to become a hero of legend before blood floods the land and consumes all that lives?
Pixel and Pen Studios started as Line By Lion Publications, a publishing house dedicated to the concept that authors, and readers, deserved more. More representation, more diversity, more unique storylines. They needed a publisher who, as an author herself, would treat an author's work with the same dedication and passion as the author did. So, she openened Line By Lion Publications, a publishing house dedicated to giving an outlet to unique voices and unheard stories. Then, at her very booksigning, the author met an artist. He was the owner and creative genius behind TLJOnline. This artist started as a fan, became a friend, then her cover artist, and eventually her husband. Eventually, though, as they merged their lives, it only made sense that they would merge their businesses. Thus, Pixel and Pen Studios was born, a place where authors and artists all over the world are celebrated and where their unique voices and styles come to life. We are more than a publishing house, we are a family of wierdos, geeks, and creatives working together and supporting each other. And what we produce is more than books are art, they are gateways into another world. We are so glad that you decided to join us! Pull up a chair, pour yourself some coffee, tea, whiskey (we don't judge) and take a look at all we have to offer!
