The story takes place sometime after the events of the short story, “Like Hail and Fire, Mixed with Blood,” which is part of the Mortal Gods: Ignition book. The government has recruited Adam White to work in a brand new unit (that is not connected to any real-world DOD or intelligence community unit). The government doesn’t know much about him but even so, it knows it wants to take advantage of all his unique skills and abilities.
So what exactly does the government plan to do with Adam? Many things likely, with the first story showing one way—a unique way that addresses a real-world challenge by using the abilities that Adam has.
And this is going to be one of the fun things about, Mortal Gods: “HVT.” Mind you, the entire story is intended to be a fun read. But by taking a real-world challenge that currently has no solution, and offering Adam as the solution to that problem in the universe of Mortal Gods, I hope the reader also enjoys that part.
What is the real-world challenge and how does Adam become the solution to it? You’ll have to read the story as it unfolds to find out.
And maybe, once I fully publish the serial story, I’ll then discuss the issue further. (Although I really won’t have to do so since the story will pretty much show everything.)
Again, right now the schedule is to publish the first installment of Mortal Gods: “HVT” next week, and to keep serially publishing an installment on a weekly basis (here at Liberate Liberty and also at Liberty Island Magazine) until I fully publish the entire tale.
