Fleeing the Inquisitors: “Darkbeast” Sequel Takes Its Young Heroine to a Dark Place

In Darkbeast, author Morgan Keyes introduced the young heroine Keara whose questions about the repressive society she lived in got her into mortal danger. Now on the run with her “darkbeast” Caw, she has discovered other rebellious souls like herself.  Whether they can be trusted is the story of Darkbeast Rebellion, just published.

Betrayal threatens everything Keara dreams of in this fast-paced, exciting sequel to Darkbeast.

Keara, her friend Goran, and the wily old actor, Taggart, are fleeing for their lives. They have all spared their darkbeasts, the creatures that take on their darker deeds and emotions and lift their spirits. But their actions defy the law, which dictates that all citizens must kill their darkbeasts on their twelfth birthdays.

There are rumors of safe havens, groups of people called Darkers who spared their darkbeasts and live outside the law. To find the Darkers, the trio must embark on a dangerous journey—and evade the Inquisitors who are searching for them everywhere. In the middle of winter, freezing and exhausted, Keara and her companions are taken to an underground encampment that seems the answer to all their hopes. But are these Darkers really what they appear to be?
