Book Excerpt from Liberty's Torch

I'm hosting an excerpt from YA dystopian novel "Liberty's Torch" today. Enjoy the excerpt!

Book Excerpt

Dana burst through the brush.  The other man reached for his weapon.
“Drop it,” said Dana pointing her gun at him.
“That gun is empty,” said the man.  “You used both barrels.”
Dana cocked the weapon pointing it at his head.  “You sure about that?”
The stern look on her face unnerved the man.  He dropped his knife and bag.
“Kick it over here,” said Dana.
The man kicked the bag to her.
“Now the both of you get going.”
“Fine.  You can have the runt.”
The second man helped his friend up and carried him away.  They scurried through the brush and away from Dana’s cold exterior.
Once she made sure they had gone, Dana searched the bag for anything of value.  She put any valuables she found into her own.  Kenny coughed.  Dana tossed him a water bottle.  “Drink that.”
For the first time, Dana looked at Kenny finally realizing who he was.  She threw the bag aside.  “Kenny?”
“Bet you never thought you’d see me again.”
“I had hoped I wouldn’t.”  Her controlled voice hurt Kenny.

About The Book

Title: Liberty’s Torch
Author: Janet McNulty
Genre: YA Dystopian
All it takes is one spark to ignite the flame of liberty.
Six months have passed since Dana and Kenny parted.  Forced to live as a wanderer, Dana discovers a crashed drone and learns of the chaos within Dystopia and what President Klens has planned for the resistance. Realizing that she must go back, Dana acquires the help of a seventy-year-old man and an old friend.  Upon her return, she finds that rebellion is in the air as the government continues to eliminate dissenters.
Forced to disguise herself, Dana searches for the resistance to tell them of President Klens’ plans.  After a few run-ins with the officers and narrow escapes from Colonel Fernau—his obsession with her growing each day—she learns that the people of Dystopia yearn to be free from their oppression.  What they need is a leader.  Knowing that everyone she cares for will never be safe so long as the government reigns supreme, Dana must decide how far she is willing to go achieve freedom.


Author Bio
