The Keys to the Far Castle

Author: @CarlHoliday
Theme: Bridges

The Moresby Collective Association controls life for Terrans living on Moresby’s Planet in the Andromeda galaxy. Twenty-one teens are running away from Village 31K2.6 because of unspoken horrors afflicting young people. There goal is the land on the other side of the Great Western Sea where legend says they will live free for the rest of their lives. Chasing them are thirty-one adults who will kill every teen, except for their leader Edgar Christiansson. He will be returned to the village to be executed in a way only humans can imagine.

Reader Comments:

Valkyrie: An interesting tale of a harsh world and the people who want to escape it.  The danger is quite real and I found the ending unexpected.
