RakhtaBhushan (Blood Ornament)- The Epic Saga

God King Arya defeats Asura Yaman. Two hundred years later, Yaman reincarnates as Prince Surya of RakhtaPrastha. Once Surya comes of age, flashbacks from his past life erode his mind. He seeks help from the Tantric guild, where his path entwines with black-clad Vidyut, his long time rival. Hardened by the cruelties of life, Vidyut embraces the dark art of Tantra, for which he is both rejected and coveted by the people of the Five Kingdoms. Meanwhile, the Kingdom of RakhtaPrastha faces political turmoil and rival kingdoms, while the animosity between God King Arya and Yaman/Surya's supporter, Goddess Dimuka, spills into the human world. Read to find out if Surya and Vidyut’s love can endure the wrath of forces, both good and evil? ******************************************************************** Chapter 80 Excerpt: “If you stumble and fall, you won’t have to walk. I can carry you to the temple.” Vidyut’s words had a hint of laughter, and Surya was astounded. He quickly stole a glance at the other apprentices, who were, fortunately, several steps ahead of them and safely out of earshot. “You mustn’t.” Surya’s eyes widened with a silent warning, but his voice could not hide his delight. “Mustn’t I? It wouldn’t be the first time for me to carry you,” Vidyut reminded him, and Surya quickly looked away from his smirking face. “Will you be holding that against me for the rest of our lives?” Surya said, with a hint of a smile in his voice. “May be.” There was a warmth in Vidyut’s tone. “A tantric does not have much else to hold on to.” Vidyut let his arm hang by his side, very close to the prince’s. Then, in a moment of deliberate carelessness, his hand touched Surya’s, and the prince did not pull away immediately. ******************************************************************** *It is based on Indian mythology, specifically Hindu mythology. But it is an original fantasy and focus is character arcs. **It has BL/Gay content. Most Surya-Vidyut interactions are in the chapters marked Surya or Vidyut. The romance in this story is slowburn. Chapters with smut will be marked so in future. ***Secondary couple is Puru-Harihar. Puru is still straight in this book. They will become a couple in the sequel. Harihar is gay and introduced in chapter 117: Hunt for A Demon’s Treasure- Part 4 **Daily Chapter Release/Surprise Mass Release** Cover Art is kindly done by a really really great artist, Nicoy Gueverra.

To Be a Demon Prince

Accused of being a terrorist, Montana Mills had been driven out of his home. Seeking vengeance, he ran to an organization to train and hunt down the person who stole his identity. However, things take a turn for the worse when the person ends up being a witch. Witch… they are the people who received powers from demons in exchange for helping the demons propagate sins. Rendering the normal weapons useless against their kind, the witches only have a few fears. Montana Mills is just an ordinary person who summoned a demon for a hellhound; he has no idea he would be on a path to fully embrace the dark magic just for his personal gain. However, his handler, Belphegor, has more plans for him. Using his sudden spark of vindication, Belphegor wage a war against the master of the terrorist—his own brother at arms, Satan. Gaining the support of more and more Princes of Hell, Montana gets pit against one of them. Stakes rise, and even his forgotten past is unearthed. Embracing a new name to propel his goals forward, Montana willingly enters the world of demons… and even vied to replace the Demon Prince of Wrath himself. ... "So it all came to this. You and me, finally standing face-to-face." A wide, menacing grin spread on Satan's face as he looked down at the approaching witch. "Tell me, Montana Mills... how was your descent to Hell?" "Worth the wait." Montana lifted his left arm and curled his fingers, blue flames blazing to turn it into a four-fingered claw. "Since you're looking forward to meeting me, I take it as you getting ready to fall by my hands." Satan only got up from the throne and dropped the goblet at the side as his humongous bat-like wings slowly spread behind him, casting a shadow that ate up the entire width of the chamber. He raised both hands as if downplaying the witch's words. "You really think you can kill me now?" Montana crouched down and summoned the blue flames to embrace his body as a silhouette of a hellhound emerged around him. "I do." Boom! He dashed towards the demon prince at the speed of sound and swung down his claw. Satan only laughed out as he summoned bones to cover his arms and block the attack. A loud sound and a brutal shockwave followed and rippled through the air as Montana's claw struck against Satan's arm. With their eyes getting at the same level, Satan returned the glare that Montana gave him. However, Montana grinned as well as his dark eyes lit up brightly in blue fire. "Do you really think I can't take your place as a demon prince?" ... This is a work of fiction. All similarities to events and people are coincidental.
