Honor in Mercy is an 11,100-word novelette featuring an arena-weary gladiator and a noble shape-shifting lion.

Inspired by the classic fable The Lion and the Mouse by Aesop.

Noctua Audax is a champion gladiator in an outskirt city of Ancient Rome, forced by his ambitious lanista to battle a lion on the sands of the arena to crush a hated rival. But the lion, Atlas, is no ordinary beast; it can shift between its leonine form and that of a human. Possessing a common enemy quickly forges a bond between Noctua and Atlas, prompting them to conspire in a plan for retribution.
