Synopsis

Horth Nersal, who, as a language-impaired child, learns to compensate for his shortcomings with an inborn "talent" -- which turns out not to be only useful in achieving his personal conquests, but also for settling family disagreements -- often with fatal results. In Horth's world, bio-engineered humans (Sevolites) dominate the rest of humanity in a curiously neo-feudal socio-political system. Horth's genius for combat and reality skimming dog-fights (called "shake-ups") is only surpassed by his unique talents on the dueling floor (and dueling is surprisingly important under Sword Law where it is used by Sevolites to settle disputes without damaging rare and valuable possessions... such as planets.) Horth finds it difficult to understand his family's conflicts over power and religion and in the end his "skills" force him to make some very difficult decisions, including those in which his loved ones must die.

Righteous Anger is about Horth Nersal -- the child of a marriage between enemies undertaken to end a war. The fighting did stop but the war of ideology continued with sometimes lethal results for loved ones on both sides. Horth, a gifted warrior in space and on the challenge floor, where his culture settles differences among themselves, struggles against a language impairment to navigate the moral and martial currents of his upbringing. At the crucial hour, he will make a painful choice – the results of which the future of nations will depend.
