N.R. Burnette was born in Port Angeles, Washington, where he grew up. At age fifteen he traveled with a drum and bugle corps across the United States, gaining his first experiences of the world. After high school he joined the US Marines, and received the Navy Achievement Medal for his work in designing a field show. His first book, Cargo Lock 5, was conceived in a small hotel room while traveling through Germany at age 31. In 2013 he released the Paphos series, a well received SF survival thriller. He made a switch to game design where he released Wolf Balls, and is now back to writing. His six kids think it is pretty cool that he can prop his television up with a book that he wrote. Most people don't get to say that about themselves.
On the day Kenji was born, he doomed his world for destruction.
As a helpless baby, drenched in the blood of his goddess mother, Kenji is hidden across worlds and abandoned on the cold steps of the Seattle Fire Department, with a prayer that he never returns.
When Kenji meets Sakura, a mysterious woman he knows nothing about, he falls helplessly in love. But the Oni, a shunned and curious entity from Kenji's world, finds Kenji once he is grown and brings him home against his will. It is an ancient, feudal dimension. Kenji awakens in a long forgotten city, buried completely underground, and guarded by a cursed creature.
Kenji's destiny at last begins to unfold as he escapes the forgotten city and finds himself quickly in battle. Powers and insights that are new to him emerge, feeling completely natural, as if every cell in his body yearns for the chaos of warfare. Powerful and destructive, he struggles to remember the teachings of his father back on Earth, teachings about honor and self-control.
Time is not on his side as Kenji's journey rips him from one battle to another, moving him closer to the greatest battle ever to take place--against a chaos god that has ruled for a thousand years. Kenji must face his true father, Gojun, and defeat him if he ever hopes to be with Sakura again.
Kenji's love for Sakura compels him, but can he find a way to deny his growing chaos powers? Or will he succumb to his destiny as a god of war?
