The handsome and beguiling, Alric Koenig uses his immense wealth and his pharmaceutical company, E-Core, to search for a cure for his sons illness. But already the disease has limited Ethans world to his father and his wild-child best friend, Scott Westmore. Both men are determined to win over Ethans love for themselves alone. When Scott tries to ripen their friendship into something more, Alric offers his son the one thing the boy has shamefully wanted all his life: a place in his fathers bed.At the same time E-Core develops a wonder-drug for Ethans illness, people in their city begin dying. They claim to have taken something known only as the Powder. No one knows where it comes from nor who is distributing it. The only thing that is known is that all who take it die.Is there a connection between the Powder and the drug Alric has developed to cure Ethan? What is the true nature of Ethans illness? And could the ancient tale of the dread Erl-King be more than just a simple story?-----This story is INCOMPLETE/ONGOINGThe poem, prologue and first 5 chapters are free for non-members.
