Bloody Brilliant Buccaneers: The Christopher Little Cutthroats
And an extra special thank you to all of my Shansters, especially those who have kept me company on Shanville. Even in death may you all be triumphant!
If my life was a fairy tale and I was writing a book about it, I'd start with, "Once upon a time there were two boys called Darren and Steve..." But my life's a horror story, so if I were to write about it, I'd have to begin with something like this instead: Evil has a name - Steve Leopard.
Time seemed to collapse... There was a sharp stabbing sensation in my stomach... Steve crowed, "Now I have you! Now you're gonna die!"
Dead if he loses - damned if he wins. The time has finally come for Darren to face his archenemy, Steve Leopard. One of them will die. The other will become the Lord of the Shadows - and destroy the world.
Is the future written, or can Darren trick destiny?
