In a world where everyone has a Specialty - something which discerns them from the rest of the crowd - John is an odd one in the midst. Why? Because he is one of the 'normal' bunch. Normal as in, one of the few who has no Specialty. Special for not being special, normal yet abnormal - what a dilemma. Thankfully - or maybe not - for him, things tend to change the status quo... and what a change it was! A sneaky arrow, lots of blood stains on one's carpet, and new insights about one's true nature. Truly, what a rapid change. Author Notes: Lots of mythology references, and world-building with factions and associations ruling the underworld. Filled with schemes and shady deals, if that's your pie. The cover image isn't mine, and I will take it down if so requested - the owner is Arkuny (which has a patre*on btw).
