Lose yourself in twelve very different stories that will take you on a surprising ride into the anatomy of a siege. These unique depictions are told from a wide variety of points of view and motivations. Survive along with the different warriors as they explore what it means to be under siege.
"Why an anthology about sieges?
I was asked, 'Why don't you write siege stories from different points of view?' Hmmm, I thought, why not? The seed was sown and plots stirred. It seemed that with each story I completed, a new idea formed until this anthology was complete. Twelve different stories that challenged my creativity and I hope will make you laugh, cringe, cheer and cry (I did writing them). I hope to take you on a surprising ride with these unique depictions of a siege."
