Rebellion is Due: Ruarnon Trilogy Prequel

When occupying soldiers turn on the Tarlahans, Urmilian’s younger brother calls for aid. But the streets are filling with soldiers. If Urmilian doesn’t help cut them off, the city will be overrun. So he risks both their lives by abandoning his household’s defence and joining his older sister on the front line.
An action-packed YA Fantasy short story (7500 words), set before Manipulator’s War.
