Hello gentle reader,
this month I have decided to highlight a few novellas that I’m really looking forward to reading…
Forged by Jennifer Rush (Altered #0.5)
Expected publication: 3d December 2013 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Before Anna and Sam, there was Dani and Sam.
There’s one rule that all Branch operatives must live by: No attachments. When Dani O’Brien entered the Branch, she planned to trade her freedom so that her family could have a better life. But joining up with the mysterious organization is more than she bargained for. Branch head Connor watches over her closely–too closely. The training is brutal, the experiments are secret, and the missions promise to be anything but ordinary. The only thing getting Dani through each day is the hope that she’ll run into Sam–a young man, about her age, who wears the world on his shoulders.
This short-story is the prequel to Jennifer Rush’s thrilling and suspenseful Altered series.
