This is chapter 2 from New Century Book 3: Tiger's Eye
They journey out into a land shrouded in mystery, at once ancient and new, beset on all sides by dangers both strange and personal.
Hrao is going to have to let her guard down a little in order to forge the kind of companionship that might allow at least one of them to survive this perilous road.
Part of the shared universe of New Century, a saga set across many worlds with each story constituting a piece of the grand mosaic.
The first five stories in New Century Phase 1 can be listened to in any order...
