Who would want to execute my brother?
Branded as a slave by a wicked ruler, 17-year-old Camilla has just received a cryptic note warning that her brother is being hunted down for a crime Camilla knows he didn’t commit. Or so she thinks . . .
The Sacrifice of One is a young adult fantasy novel with a defiant heroine and an oppressive reign so strong that it takes two uprisings to tear it down.
The proof of Camilla’s slavery is on the inside of her arm. A mutilated scar has been branded into her skin, W for Warwick. Forced to labor at Warwick’s national farm for a pitiful payout, the only good thing in Camilla’s life is her best friend and big brother, Tuor.
When Camilla receives a cryptic note from a stranger, she has to face the truth about her brother: He’s on the run. He’s in grave danger. And he’s being accused of a hideous crime.
Camilla would bet her life that Tuor is innocent and that someone has set him up, but who? As Tuor’s demise draws near, will Camilla find relief in learning the truth surrounding her brother’s crime? Or will she accept that one must be sacrificed for the good of many?
