New York City, the grand metropolis of the United States, had been devastated from the radiation wars over global oil rights. Only a few of the largest cities had endured the holocaust, many in name only, as the survivors migrated to widely separated tracts of land left un-radiated by the nuclear warheads unleashed by oil-hungry countries. The once-dominate United States had been reduced to independent city-states. As recognized power was redistributed around the world, elected governments began to disintegrate into dictatorial regimes. York City (as it was now called) was under the control of the latest man in power, Mayor Kourei Posin. Rights and privileges were being systematically stripped away. Choices of education and employment were no longer options; those opportunities were now mandated and enforced by a government as necessity dictated. David Kendal of Kendal Enterprises had a plan but it was risky. Although the people wanted reform and freedom, they no longer had the voice or the power to achieve it. The Mayor’s security troops had already imprisoned some of David’s closest friends and confidants while others had met untimely deaths. Yet, not everyone was opposed to the growing tyranny of the ruling class. Even within David’s own inner circle of family and advisors the promise of wealth and power was the harbinger of betrayal. With his family in hiding, David and his few remaining allies needed to find a place to work their plan. They would build a city within a city, a guardian city – the Citadel.

'For as long as I can remember, I have heard stories about four gates, the four gates of the citadel.' 'You mean the Gate of Merlin, the Gate of Brahman, the Gate of Darwin, and the Gate of Abraham?' Leumas stopped dead in his tracks and stared at Tal. 'You've heard of them?' he asked. Tal turned back and faced his companion. 'I've heard of them, and I've seen them, Leumas.' 'I knew it! I knew they were real! My father always said they were just legend!' Leumas is going on his Journey of Promise, a one-month rite of passage in which he must make the most valuable purchase possible with the small sum entrusted to him by his parents. The choices are endless: a new bridle, a costly jewel, or perhaps he could buy the most valuable prize of all— truth! The path to truth holds many dangers. Murderous cults and enigmatic soothsayers want Leumas amongst their ranks—or dead. Leumas will receive help along the way, but will it be enough? Will Leumas be enticed by the power of Merlin's Gate, or will he seek the peace and unity promised in Brahman's Gate? Will he embrace the material world of Darwin's Gate, or will he find truth in the Gate of Abraham, the bloodiest gate of them all? Join Leumas on his pilgrimage as danger, deception, and death meet him at every turn in The Four Gates of the Citadel.
