Not all heroes go to heaven.Terrence Mack was born poor, grew up tough, and died hard. Waking up in a sea cave with nothing but the clothes on his back and a new bullet scar was enough to convince him that wherever his death had brought him, it wasn´t paradise.His new world quickly proves to be a place of danger, magic, monsters, and - for Terry at least - women.Known on Celestine as a template, Terry´s genes are key to the survival of the eldritch races. But the fiercely competitive eldritch don´t typically leave their lovers alive long, and aren´t accustomed to taking ´no´ for an answer.The average life expectancy of a template on Celestine? Three days.A city boy with no survival skills to speak of, Terry sets out in a desperate bid to gather allies. With the help of a lonely dryad, a mixed-up minotress, and a misguided party of dungeon delvers, he must be brave, cunning, and good with the ladies to have any hope of living through the month.All the while an ancient evil bent on the destruction of Celestine exists in the north, and templates are the key to its southern expansion....Warning: This book does not pan to waving curtains and fade to black.

How much blood is one man worth?Terrence Mack has succeeded in keeping his freedom, but at what cost?The Vicereine of Florence is dead. The city she ruled has fallen to chaos, under assault by both Twilight Zone agents and a seemingly unstoppable dragon determined to claim the template´s power for herself.In shouldering responsibility for the crisis, Terry has taken it upon himself to break the siege or die trying.

As Terry forges ahead, dire consequences force him to question the value of one man´s life, weighed against the havoc wrought for his sake.
