Eldradjans Fear

After people have lost the war against the Shadowlord, they are condemned to pay one hundred and fifteen of theirs as a tribute every five years. Forced to mine a rare metal in the tunnels, they lose hope every day.

When Eilynn and James accidentally get into the tunnel, they expect a similar fate. Only Mika can save his siblings now.

The author already wrote the manuscript when she was 12 years old. Nearly 20 years later, she completely revised the book together with the publisher. In her reading, she also talks about the hurdles that one has with such old manuscripts, and why second chances also make sense in manuscripts.
