The Blood Lottery
by K.N. Lee
Veruth was once the seat of power for humans.
Now, they toil in the mines and on The Wall as slaves for a race of elves who draw their power from the sun.
Ava–a human living in the slums–knows one thing; she will not be forced into the Blood Lottery. Though she is of age to be matched with an elven suitor, her heart craves freedom. There are legends and myths about what lies beyond The Wall–tales of an ancient evil. But, she doesn’t care. Something beyond the stone and desperation of her people beckons to her.
When she enlists the help of the rogue rebel leader, Kem, hope flutters inside, but, so does an ancient magic she never knew existed.
