Five Kings


Chevron is a land ruled by five kings carrying the blood of God.

Each king has a special power. They are called the Blue King, the Red King, the Green King, the Purple King, and the Black King.

Azure, the Blue King, is the most arrogant and ruthless of them all.

The story begins when Sage, a young boy who has taken the place of his sister as a "star seer", is sent to him. However, he meets the gentle and caring Red King Gules by chance and slowly falls in love with him.

The Blue King does not forgive Sage's intentions, who is still his property. And as if to ridicule him, Azure starts toying with his emotions.

What will become of Sage's future?

I was having difficulties on how should I translate the characters' name. I thought I'd just gonna follow the manga but then I decided to do some research first.

The subjects (characters & places) in this novel are mostly named after "heraldry": discipline relating to the design, display and study of armorial bearings (known as armory). But I'm still not sure of all though.

So pleaaase if you feel itchy because of some mistranslations, don't hold yourself back to tell me! 🙈
