Escape From Moria
Book One of the Morian Chronicles
The Princess of Moria is on the run. Faced with an impending arranged marriage to an evil man, she has chosen to disguise herself as a miner’s daughter named Ellie and flee. Unfortunately, the only way for a woman to leave the planet is in the company of her male kin or a husband. Ellie pays a drunken off-worlder to marry her with the agreement that she will leave his ship the first chance she gets. Forced to rely on her resentful new husband amidst a hostile crew, Ellie embarks on her daring escape from Moria.
Ellie’s goal is to find the Talmidim, an underground rebellion intent on overthrowing the Conglomerate’s control over the population of the entire solar system. The Talmidim are convinced that duplicating Ellie’s genetically-adapted marker is key to winning the war against the Conglomerate.
The only thing Ellie must do is escape the planet and find the Talmidim but doing so is proving harder than she imagined. Faced with marauders and plague-ridden creatures, will Ellie even survive the trip?
What will Ellie do if she can’t find the Talmidim before someone discovers that she isn’t a miner’s daughter? What will her tyrant father do if he finds her with the crew of the Ulysses? And what will Ellie decide is more important, protecting her budding romance or revealing her identity to save her entire crew?
