The Darkest Hour is a young adult fictional novel. I have published excerpts (rough draft) below.
Rory is a young woman who recently aroused the unfortunate attention of the Queen of Arrowhead, in her native micro-nation. In Arrowhead, staying under the radar is the key to survival. Now that the Queen has Rory in her sights, can Rory succeed in escaping to make her own fate? Will Rory be the person everyone expects her to be? What will she be willing to sacrifice to save herself and all of Arrowhead?
