“Kelly Braffet is extraordinary . . . Familiar yet entirely unique, THE UNWILLING is the sort of story that seeps under your skin and pulses there, intimate and vibrant and alive. Fantasy at its most sublime.”

The Unwilling

A novel by Kelly Braffet

The Unwilling is the story of Judah, a foundling born with a special gift and raised inside Highfall castle along with Gavin, the son and heir to Lord Elban’s vast empire. Judah and Gavin share an unnatural bond that is both the key to her survival…and possibly her undoing.

As Gavin is groomed for his future role, Judah comes to realize that she has no real position within the kingdom, in fact, no hope at all of ever traveling beyond its castle walls. Elban—a lord as mighty as he is cruel—has his own plans for her, for all of them.

Unrelated: here is a picture of my sweet doofus of a dog-niece, Sandy, looking uncharacteristically noble.

I am lazy about simple math until I do a workout video, at which point I suddenly become a genius at being able to figure out when I am 5/6 of the way to 2/3 done.
