A Living Will

Synopsis:

Zedda is dead. But for over a millenium he has walked the world as a servant of Jurisanti, first of the Reaper Lords. His mission: to prevent humans from achieving immortality, often by making sure they achieved death first. And he was dangerously effective at his job.

But something went wrong, and Zedda walked away from the world. Shut in his office, in a dead city surrounded by monsters, he stopped moving, stopped thinking, and slept.

Eighty-seven years later, Zedda’s silence is disturbed by a young woman, guided to him by his old student. Zedda emerges into a changed world — but his duty has not changed. If humans once again would reach for immortality, then he would once again strike them down. He might be the last of the servants of death, but he is by far the most implacable.

…Isn’t he? Unbeknownst to those around him, his words and his thoughts do not match up…
