BLURB:

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.

REVIEW: 

Raeth, a young Neumarian, has been taken captive for interrogation, by the Queen of the Kantian's, in the first novella, Weighted, from the Neumarian Chronicles, by Ciara Knight.

Raeth has a special power, which she tries very hard not to allow the Neumarian's to discover. She endures horrific torture to keep her secret, as the Queen endorses implants to be attached to her body. 

First her leg is removed without any sedatives or other medications and is replaced with a metallic prosthetic. To Raeth's horror, this now makes her a slag, and sadly she fears she will no longer be accepted by her people, if she is lucky enough to survive the Queens ongoing torture and return home.

Incredibly, she finds a friend in Princess Semara, the Queens daughter, who risks everything to try to save Raeth.

This short novella, by Ciara Knight, is an imaginative steam punk story, based in a futuristic world, with strong believable characters and graphic descriptions of the horror Raeth faces during her torture.  Weighted, takes its readers into a harsh world, filled with fear of a Queen who is infatuated with replacing body parts into mechanical devices. Ciara has produced a story which sends shivers down ones spine, thinking of the agony the MC endures by her captives.

Carolyn,
Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review, Weighted. It is dark and edgy. The next installment, Escapement, is not as graphic, but still a post war setting.
Thanks again!! Have a great weekend. :)
