“I hear the clatter of swords and torches outside the cave as the soldiers come for me. In a moment their faces will relax when they see a skinny, outnumbered boy. They don’t realise how dangerous I am. That I have monsters inside me. I want to shout out and warn them to run, but I can’t. And then the violence begins…” What if your body was not your own? What if you had vast strength, but were used as a weapon? A gripping story about the power of possession, and the power of freedom.
