What is Black Sun?
Set in the fantasy realm of Alkebulan, Black Sun is the story of a group of unlikely heroes who must band together to reclaim their homeland from a mysterious, invading alien armada.Unaware that he is the last survivor of his battalion, Yero fights to defend his homeland against the savage attacks of a mysterious invading army.
Filled with intense action, beautiful illustrations, and thought-provoking ideas, Black Sun explores the consequences of the age old warning, “Be careful what you wish for because it just may come true.”
The Gambah are an elite group of warriors who are sworn to protect the Samah Empire. Yero is their newest member.
Highly-skilled with an attitude bordering on arrogance, Yero struggles to accept the mundane tasks that have been assigned to him.
Instead, he longs for the thrill of battle, and the glory that he thinks comes along with it.
Ironically his wishes come true when the Samah Empire is suddenly attacked by a bloodthirsty horde of unknown origin.
Yero believes he can hold his own against the insurmountable odds that confront him but will this battle for survival prove to be too much?
