A fantasy allegory for the cycle of abuse, Borehole Bazaar by Kendra Namednil is a very different dark fantasy.
The story follows the royal bodyguard Ptielieren after he has fled his privileged life to protect his land. He and his companions are assaulted by ferocious creatures and captured by bugbears to serve as pets for their cubs. A harrowing survival story follows, as they can neither run away or fight back.
Reviewers praise the exploration of abusive relationships and the darkly detailed narrative. You can find out more about this upcoming book on the Inkshares page here!
