At the Convent of Sweet Mercy, young girls are brought up as killers. It takes a full ten years of intense training of the blade and combat for these girls to become Red Sisters. In a select few of these girls, the old bloods will show themselves. Giving them rare talents and abilities that haven’t been seen for many years.

Mark Lawrence is married with four children, one of whom is severely disabled. His day job is as a research scientist focused on various rather intractable problems in the field of artificial intelligence. He has held secret level clearance with both US and UK governments. At one point he was qualified to say ‘this isn’t rocket science … oh wait, it actually is’.

Between work and caring for his disabled child, Mark spends his time writing, playing computer games, tending an allotment, brewing beer, and avoiding DIY.
