Unveiled by Trisha Wolfe
Fallon has been sent on her first mission for the rebels. Dressed in silk (What is up with that?) and dancing is not quite what she would have preferred for a first mission but she needs to prove herself to the rebels. No questions, just do it. She’s capable, having trained since she was eleven. Her mentor thinks she's ready and the King is wrong. There has to be a better way than this sick utopian bubble where the virus takes everyone eventually. All she has to do is kill one knight who has…, what has he done to deserve to die?
5 stars – a must read
I'm not normally a short story kinda girl. I like novels but I picked this one up and I'm glad I did. What a craft to be able to create a world and characters that I care about in just a few pages. Trisha did it though. Very quickly, I understood this dystopican world of the future where the Earth has been destroyed for the most part. I met a rebellion that wants to move forward not backwards. I really enjoyed how the world building came together as the story progressed at a dance. There were well developed characters that quickly become favorites. I love Fallon for her strong will and determination but most of all for her thinking. She thinks for herself. I love that. Xander is also a free thinker and he watches the stars when it’s against the rules. Love that. Guess I’m a little bit of a rebel myself. There were even a couple surprises and a twist I didn't see coming. Not an easy task for a short story.
Great characters, great plot, great world building, quick read - pick up this ebook. It’s fabulous.
