Underground from modern civilization is Pandora’s slums, a hidden society built upon secrecy. Controlling this community are three underworld leaders known as district leaders.
The district leaders run a small population under less than humane conditions, even more so if you’re one of the cursed Aeon host. John Thanatos, the child who carries an ancient deity known as the god of death is one of them. Neglected, abused, and even taunted by citizens, John knows little about Pandora’s purpose or how they’ve created Aeon host, nor does he care. But he’ll soon learn.
As he tries to make friends and find a place to call home, John will be pitted against other Aeon host, forcing him to question and even abandon the comforts he’s built in order to ignore what he is… a death god. The test he’ll endure, the hardships he’ll face will only bring him closer to what he dreads about himself and others like him. An aimless existence as an Aeon host. A monster.
But if that’s true, why does Pandora hold them in the slums? Why can’t they ever leave? As John is pressured to use his curse to do what he must, the mysteries of Pandora and himself will begin to unravel beyond his control.

About the Author

Charles Lee has always been a fan of stories with greater meaning than what the surface portrays. His love for profound fantasy began at a young age. His growing interest in thought-provoking stories ranged from a gamut of different areas of literature. These are experiences he’s cherished and evolved with for over a decade. It’s his key drive for creating compelling, unique, philosophical stories.

When he decided to begin his own novel, The Way To Dawn, he originally had no intention of pursuing writing as a career. But when he fell in love with his own characters, he became inspired. He was so proud of his creations that he wanted to share this part of himself with others. In no time, writing soon became more than just his way of expression, it became his wings.
