Escaping Safety by Bonnie Gwyn

Christina has grown up literally ‘sheltered’ in a sanctuary run by mysterious Officials who offer safety in exchange for captivity. She’s already suspicious of the Officials when she meets Tyler Andrus, commander of the T-Squad: a group of rebels on a quest to destroy the sanctuaries and bring light back into the world. Having yearned for freedom all her life, she joins them in a journey of hope, terror, and self-discovery. 

Here is an excerpt from Escaping Safety:

 “You have a weapon and a reason to use it. In battle, that’s really all you need.”
“What about courage?”
“If you’re fighting for something you love, courage will find you.” The footsteps of the T-Squad sounded on the ramp above, accompanied by goodbyes and starting orders. “C’mon, little doggie. We’ve got work to do.”
Wolf raised his fist. “Don’t call me little doggie.”
“Then howl and show your true colors. Stop pretending you’re a coward. You’re so much more than that.”
Wolf gave a humorously terrible howl, raising his hands to the sky.
Lexi rolled her eyes. “Fail.”

Bonnie Gwyn wrote her first book, about a talking grandfather clock, when she was six – and hasn’t stopped writing since. In fact, she can’t “not write,” and she wouldn’t have it any other way. She hasn’t missed a day of writing in her journal for the past four years!
As a winner in this year’s National Novel Writing Month challenge, Bonnie produced her latest dystopian novel, Escaping Safety, and is now working on its sequel. She is also close to completing a fantasy romance series, The Legends of Elldamorae, whose characters have captured her heart and can’t wait to have their stories revealed.    

Bonnie’s mantra is, “I write because I believe every story deserves to be told.”
