Book Release: Weighted By Ciara Knight

The awesome blogger/writer Ciara Knight has a book coming out today: Weighted, which I posted the cover for back in May as part of its reveal. Now, the actual book (a prequel novelette to The Neumarian Chronicles) is available.

The Great War of 2185 is over, but my nightmare has just begun. I am being held captive in the Queen’s ship awaiting interrogation. My only possible ally is the princess, but I’m unsure if she is really my friend or a trap set by the Queen to fool me into sharing the secret of my gift. A gift I keep hidden even from myself. It swirls inside my body begging for release, but it is the one thing the Queen can never discover. Will I have the strength to keep the secret? I’ll know the answer soon. If the stories are true about the interrogators, I’ll either be dead or a traitor to my people by morning.

Read Chapter One of Weighted.
