TL;DR: The Silent Assassin
series is a Dark Space Opera novel series set in the 28th Century, when humanity spread its colonies across the Milky Way. The story is told from the point of view of a young mercenary named Audi Prabian,
who is on a quest to search and defeat his long lost mentor, a legend known only by his nom de guerre: The Silent Assassin
The Crowned Confederacy of Mankind
was formed in the aftermath of The Great Conflict
in 21st Century (colloquially referred to as World War Three). Starting off as a Federation of republics, a Monarchist movement rose and installed Raditya Tanuya
as The First Monarch of Humanity
. Since then, his dynasty ruled over mankind contiguously without any succession crisis. Humanity thrives, repopulating Terra as their homeworld, and began expanding to extraterrestrial world - and soon extrasolar planets after the discovery of Laplace Dimension
and their use to travel great distances.
Though, nobody knows why the coordinates they can travel to are confined within our Milky Way.
At the final years of the 27th century, an economic catastrophe struck The Crowned Confederacy. Economists coined the term The Galactic Economic Crisis
for it. The result was complete shutdown of colonial economies across the galaxy. Poverty ran rampant, and unemployment soared. Many turned themselves into organized crime, particularly becoming hired assassins and mercenaries.
One of the strongest mercenaries to ever live called himself The Silent Assassin.
After a mercenary killed The Monarch, his eldest son and successor, Giovanni Edmond Tanuya,
declared a war of annihilation against mercenaries. He created the deadliest task force comprising The Military Sector's
spec-ops unit, The Red Berets, and The Civilian Sector's
most elite Police Unit: The Blue Detachment. After series of brutalities committed by all sides, mercenary business finally waned.
But they failed to locate The Silent Assassin.
The series begin right afterwards (Book 01). The Silent Assassin rescued a young boy amidst a planetary bombardment, and trained him to become his First Apprentice. His name is Audi Prabian
, and he is the series' main protagonists.
Battles! Spaceships! War! Fighting robots!
While the things listed above certainly form an integral components of the story, The Silent Assassin
essentially tells a coming-of-age story. With a planned 25 volumes to be written over the next decade or so, it will cover the journeys of the main characters from their young adulthood in Book 01, until they reach maturity in Book 25.
It is a Dark Space Opera
, a drama encompassing a stage as wide as our Milky Way Galaxy, with a gallery of casts sailing through a harsh and cruel world at the brink of its boiling point. They will be tested to their limits, be it physical, mental, or philosophical. Thought-provoking and morally vague decisions will be presented, and the choices they make will guarantee readers a lean back on their chairs and bed, presenting themselves with questions and thoughts taken from the scenes they've just read.
My job as an author/creator is to provide the characters with a universe to live in, and the worst scenarios of adversities to survive through. The characters' job, therefore, is to respond, grow and learn, or die within those adversities.
We've seen many tales teaching one not to lose hope, but, what must one do when all hopes are truly lost?
