The Five Unnecessaries - by Laura Campbell

I am Aislyn. These are the sad facts of my world.  Any child born in the Republic who is unscheduled, imperfect, or inconvenient is labeled an Unnecessary.  Any pregnant woman, or Vessel, is targeted as an enemy of the state for harboring an Unnecessary.  

Their only hope is to be rescued by a Protector, one of 26 girls trained to infiltrate the Republic and get them safely back to the Territory.
These girls are chosen because they are strong, smart, and heroic. They train for years in medicine, technology, physical agility, and espionage.
They never choose girls like me.
Except…they did.

I am a threat and a risk because I don’t comply with the rules and expectations.
I am a target because the Republic is more determined than ever to destroy anyone who crosses the border.
I think my trainer has a secret.

I am the 27th Protector of the 188th generation,
and I’m terrified I will fail.

There is a void that follows the words

“I wish I could help.”  Fill the void.

“So I will.”

The First Traitor - By Laura Campbell

It seems like a miracle should be safer.
He’s such a dangerous miracle.

My name is Aislyn. My story started the day I was named the 27th Protector of the 188th Generation.  My story wasn’t what I was expecting.
I met my trainer, Collin. I expected to struggle through my training, and hate him.
He fell in love with me. I infiltrated the Republic three times. I expected to save three Unnecessaries.  I saved five.
I expected to battle with any enemy soldier I saw.
The first one I ever met saved my life.
But the last night Alex saved my life, eight of us died.
I’m no longer the 27th Protector.
The Council has altered our objective from saving Unnecessaries to destroying the enemy.
The Republic has threatened to retaliate. Lives have been lost. Collin has focused on fighting the new laws. Alex has tried to survive his regret.
I just want to save a life.
To change the story.

It will take a miracle.
A dangerous miracle.
A traitor.
