Rage — a series by Celtic Bard

Rage follows the life of Michael FitzKiern, a hulking giant of a man who has found work at a New York strip club called Exposé where his job gives him reason to vent his rage, triggering his medical condition and thereby feeding his addiction. But Michael's life goes sideways one fateful night and he learns things about himself that sound both absolutely insane and yet make so much sense. Things about himself. Things about the criminal father who abandoned his family when Michael was but a babe. Things that make his simple existence not nearly as simple as he thought it was. WARNING: This series contains violence and some sensual, if not sexual, themes. Do not read if those sorts of things bother you.

1 Rage-Part I: Me

Young Michael FitzKiern was diagnosed with an odd medical condition that made his body produce a strange cocktail of chemicals that turned his fight-or-flight mechanism into something much different. Going to his geeky older brother's rescue in an afterschool fight, Michael found a natural high in his rage, and that made him something of a rage-addict. Instead of becoming a monster in a modern era where such things are frowned upon, Michael channeled his rage into something more... noble?
