Published in 2020 under Partridge Publishing in Singapore, The Freelancers follow the story of a kingdom facing civil strife. Rebels gathered to fight against a corrupt ruler, winning the war in the process. When the oppression ended, a hero left behind a legacy, and years later, history seems to repeat itself upon the death of a King. As the King had no relatives, a former disciple lays claim on the throne and rivals become outraged, and another civil war breaks out. As the war continued, enemies left and right became overwhelmed fighting against sorcery. To make matters worse, one of eleven ancient magic swords was used against the rebellion. One day, a hero found one sword that was created to fight all forms of sorcery, how can one warrior defeat all with only one advantage?
“Authority without wisdom is power in the wrong hands”- M.A Frost.

The Freelancers is a unique and untold story creatively built by the author and goes into great detail about magical forces, their origin, and protagonists who unravel the unknown world.
