Series Info--A retelling of The Count of Monte Cristo

A small group of Watchers once lived near the shore of southern Korea. Through their ability in martial arts, aided by a magic stone, they were invincible.

They came in pairs. The Gadeu, or guard, had supernatural ability in martial arts and eternal life so long as he wore the stone. With him always was Bohoja, his protector, who could shapeshift into an animal. Together, they brought justice to the world around them—so long as they never let personal desires dictate their actions. There’s was a life of service.

Within a decade of the gold rush in California, fortune seekers traveled deeper in the “Golden Mountain” searching for more. What they found instead was a source for the rare stone. Deep in Idaho Territory, the star garnet shines on its own—but only if a Gadeu activates it. Counterfeit shifters have discovered a way to harness the stone. Now, with the power of eternal life and shape-shifting…

one man will use a legend to change the tides of the civil war and the world

one man will discover the price of sacrifice to keep power over others

and a woman will become what she sought to destroy.
