Amos, the son of a slave trader, yearns to put his family's atrocities behind him. Saremis and Emery, young slaves and Amos's only friends, dream of freedom from inside their locked cages. 

A narrow escape thrusts the trio into a world that wants them back in chains...or dead. Every day becomes a fight to survive. From the mountain forests where beasts howl to a city on the verge of tearing itself apart, they must cling to the one thing that keeps them going: each other.

It's so sad so far :( It's a very serious topic. I like the characters but I hope some comic relief shows up soon.
Great first chapter! It establishes the world and characters really well and leaves me eager to read more.

You have a  great balance of description and simple sentences so the reader feels engaged, but not overwhelmed

Captivating first chapter! The trio of protagonists have strong chemistry. One question though, will there be magical elements in the story?
