The Hunchback of Notre Dame meets The Handmaid’s Tale and YOU in this twisted rendition of history.
Claude is stricken by tragedy, and all fingers point at the Gypsies as the nation divides, and an empire falls. He is the king’s best man and has been given orders to rid France of all their problems.
He promised peace.
Amidst his role in a barbaric hunt and corrupt justice system, Claude finds himself drawn to a young girl of this minority race and consumes himself with her and his own ideas of who she should be for him.
They gave him power.
Paranoia and twisted delusion begin to bind Claude’s double life as a charming official, able to justify his every crime to his followers, but also a criminal narcissist with a blood obsession.
Now their new world must be paid for.
Will his desires for the girl soften his heart? Or will the Judge’s Demon of hatred add fuel to the fire in his search for the leader of the rebellion rising against him?
Warning: graphic violence including torture, abuse, and rape.

Claude and Marie
- What is your full name? Do you have a nickname?
-Claude- It’s James Claude Fontaine, but few know my first name.
-Marie- Marie Victoria Adams… Fontaine now. I’m still adjusting to that.
- Do you have any siblings?
-Claude- my father fathered another child, but I don’t speak much on that.
-Marie- I have three sisters, Giselle, Valerie, and Cordelia. I was the second born.
- How would you describe your childhood?
-Claude- I’d say there was nothing about my childhood that wasn’t already mapped out before my birth. My father held high expectations and was not kind if everything wasn’t precisely done. Some would say he was a cruel man, but I always understood my purpose and accepted the greater good that would be in my life.
-Marie- It was so much fun! Papa was a musician, and a really good one. He would take us to all of his concertos. My sisters and I loved dressing up. When I started playing the cello, we traveled even more. I even played in front of the king once. We saw so many beautiful places and met a lot of friendly people. I often miss those days.
- Who is your best friend?
-Claude- Charles and Joseph. We all grew up around each other. We make the perfect team in our careers. I would trust them with my life and secrets.
-Marie- Growing up it was always my younger sister Val. we’ve always been close. In the last few years I would say Rosa. I don’t feel like there’s anything I couldn’t come to her with. She has made life bearable.
- Claude mentioned secrets before, what is the most private thing you’re willing to share?
-Claude- I think we’re done here.
-Marie- I snuck out a few times, mostly at night, but a couple of times during the day. It was a really fun time.
