Kate Policani is a good friend these days. I first met her several years ago after reading and being very impressed by her book ‘The Disenchanted Pet’. Since then, her writing has grown and she released a revised version of the book recently. It’s a great story and well worth a read. This is a short story she’s put out on Kindle and it’s free this weekend, so I suggest that you click the link and pick it up.

Genre: Fantasy, Short Story, Choose-your-path
Mesha and her brothers attend the Grand Festival of Duman to see the greatest spectacle in the land of Sas against their Father’s wishes. Mesha’s people don’t worship Duman and consider his believers to be reprobates. Her sneaky brothers brought her along rather than give up their fun, and she didn’t object.
In the Queen’s Courtyard, everyone expected that the ceremonial dove the queen released would choose a sacrifice. But it should have landed on an object, not a person! The bird lands on Mesha, choosing her as a sacrifice to Duman.
What will Mesha do? Will she die for a god she doesn’t believe in? Can she cling to her beliefs in the face of death and all the decadence of the palace?
