We love Tapas (@tapas_app) here at Comic Book Yeti, so when I received the preview of an upcoming web novel from new creator JT Song from the folks over at Tapas, I immediately had to dive in! Tapas is known for their bite-sized webcomics and web novels, making the content easily accessible for both readers on the go and those who love to get lost in binge sessions. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak of the first thirty chapters of this new series, and wanted to make sure you all had it on your radars!

Tapas Entertainment Launches The Rule of Fire, Debut Web Novel from JT Song

Tapas Entertainment launches an Epic Action-Fantasy Literary Adventure! 

Can Sera save the world from demons and gods without losing her part-time job –  what self-respecting demon has a job?!

Los Angeles, CA – June 27, 2024 – Leading independent digital publisher of webcomics and web novels, Tapas Entertainment, announces the launch of the next great action-fantasy, The Rule of Fire, available TODAY, June 27 at 11:00 AM PST. Set in ancient Korea and modern-day urban United States, The Rule of Fire tells the story of a vengeful demon faced with an unexpected dilemma: take down the gods who condemned her to Hell for all of eternity…or build a new life on Earth with the help of a colorful cast of humans? The ongoing series will launch with chapter 1 today, chapters 2-50 arriving on Sunday, June 30 at 11:00 AM PST, and new chapters updating twice weekly on Sundays and Wednesdays at 9:00 AM PST.

Tapas has a rich history of success with action fantasy web novels including the smash hit web novel AND webcomic The Beginning After the End (with over 25M views), the long-running, acclaimed Solo Leveling, and, most recently, I Made a Deal with the Devil

“I have found that in order to explore deep truths about what it means to live as humans in this world, I've had to call on otherworldly monsters and superhuman heroes,” says creator JT Song. “That's what The Rule of Fire is to me, a ‘true’ story about love and survival told through the medium of fantasy, with of course, as much action as I could pack in.” 

The Rule of Fire follows the female protagonist, Sera, who after a thousand years spent fighting her way out of Hell, returns to Earth with a compulsion to hunt down other demons while hiding from the angelic Guardians. She never expected to find love among the humans. With danger trailing her very demon nature, Sera must make a decision: protect humanity from the wrath of gods and demons or grab her chance at happiness.

“JT Song has crafted a world where ancient myths collide with modern life, a story that is both thrilling and deeply resonant,”  Alex R. Carr, Executive Director of Publishing Development for Tapas Entertainment. “The Rule of Fire is a perfect example of the innovative storytelling we champion at Tapas. We are excited to share Sera's epic journey with our readers and introduce a new blockbuster Action Fantasy into the web novel pantheon.”

In The Rule of Fire, set in ancient Korea and modern-day urban America, the author can be seen as a child of immigrants laying claim to both his cultural heritage and his adopted home. Inspired by Korean manhwas and action films as well as American westerns and novels, JT Song weaves a tale that is pure fantasy yet somehow sings psychological truths.

About JT Song

After years of toiling behind the scenes as a ghostwriter, JT Song is ready to tell his own stories on his own terms. An avid fan of Korean manhwa (Blade of the Phantom Master and We Saw the Bird Lost in the Middle of the Road are two of his many favorites) and American TV/film (Stranger Things, Wednesday, and Studio Ghibli films are just the first few mentioned on his “must-watch” list), JT has always known storytelling was his calling. As a child, he would read far into the night using a flashlight under the blankets to avoid parental detection and drift off to sleep dreaming up tales of his own. And now, he’s ready to share one of his tales with you.
