Release date August 21, 2012
A prequel to 
The Neumarian Chronicles
By Ciara Knight
The Great War of 2185 is over, but my nightmare has just begun. I am being held captive in the Queen’s ship awaiting interrogation. My only possible ally is the princess, but I’m unsure if she is really my friend or a trap set by the Queen to fool me into sharing the secret of my gift. A gift I keep hidden even from myself. It swirls inside my body begging for release, but it is the one thing the Queen can never discover. Will I have the strength to keep the secret? I’ll know the answer soon. If the stories are true about the interrogators, I’ll either be dead or a traitor to my people by morning.

My Review

This book is only a thirty one page prequel to what I am sure will be an amazing series. I entered a two hour contest to win this book and i am glad i did. I truly felt like I was reading a full length novel and by the time I was done I was left wanting more.

Weighted is amazing! It's got alot to offer in alot of different areas. It has paranormal, dystopian, fantasy, and steampunk aspects that all fit together very well. 

I am really loving the way this story flows. The characters are very quickly introduced (it is a short story) but they are really well defined. I can picture every character in vivid detail and love what I envision.

 If this thirty one page story is just a setting up to a series of books then I am one hundred percent invested and can not wait to dive into these books but add them to my library so I can read them over and over. 

I can say with great certainty that this series will be one of my all time favorites! 


  1. Terri, thank you so much for taking the time to read and review, Weighted. I'm so excited that you liked it so much. :) Escapement will be released at the beginning of 2013.

    1. Your so welcome I can't wait to begin the series!
