Kevin Shi's Rasa
Discovered this awesome web serial some time back, and wanted to share it with you. It's called Rasa, and is a dark, epic fantasy set in a original world.
Author Kevin Shi sends this description:
Free will, family, individuality: here, these are not rights, but commodities.
Every living thing in Albumere is born with a tabula, a disk that grants its owner complete control over the person linked to it, and it is in this brutal world that a young boy will do what no one has ever done before. He has found the tabula of a girl he has never met, and without knowing who or where she is, he is going to find a way to give it back. Following his journey, Rasa is both a simple romance about the power of a stranger’s generosity and a fantastic political epic spanning the breadth of a richly detailed world built entirely from the ground up.
It is gritty and dark, and reader discretion is advised. But knowing that you all have a taste for adventure, romance, and sprawling stories that don't follow the norm, I thought you might enjoy giving it a look.
Have fun, and see you later this week!
