Enslavement Excerpt: 
The full moon’s silver rays seeped through the narrow slits of the barred window that sat high in the barrack’s stone walls. With a dirt encrusted fingernail, sixteen-year-old Azika traced the slim rods of light falling on her arm like shadowy prison bars, devoid of warmth. It mirrored the cold, hollow grief gripping her gut as she tried to push the nightmare from her mind, but the haunting screams of the dying and smell of burning flesh repeated in her mind until her stomach rolled.

Despair clung to her like a filthy coat, sending a shiver down her spine. The rusty bunk squeaked under her shifting weight. She pulled her musky wool blanket up to her chin for warmth, but not all the trembles were from the chilly predawn air. The dream was always there, waiting every time she closed her eyes, but this time it felt so real. The images dancing behind her eyelids were as vivid as the reality around her. The noise, the blood, the loved ones lost...

Azika shook her head, desperate to knock the dream from her mind before tears found a way through her shield.
Back Blurb:
Sixteen-year-old Azika is a slave in the Kongul Mining Camp for as long as she can remember. Cursed with beauty, she is forced to hide under dirt and filth to keep the guards at bay, but there is one who knows what lies beneath the grim and will stop at nothing to have her. Struggling to hold tight to her courage, Azika finds herself sentenced to the dangerous exploration tunnels.

Befriending a fellow crew member, who remembers life outside this prison, Azika dares to believe they can escape and finally unravel the mysteries surrounding her life. Even with Bear’s help, the odds are stacked against them. For how does one escape a mountain and the guards surrounding it?
