Courage and Retribution is a short free read accompanying my novel Kidnapped. It's a prequel telling the story of some of the side characters and how they got together.
On the outskirts of the ever present Alliance's watchful eye, William Reynolds has served as mayor and preacher for the better part of a decade. Life is good, and he sees no reason to change anything. When a family fleeing the Alliance's oppression comes his way, he still doesn't hesitate to hide them.
Reaching out to the people in need proves to be more dangerous than he could ever have anticipated, and once events are set in motion, there is no going back.
