The Struggle For And The Price Of Freedom by Steve Blizin on 21 March 2016
The writing here is excellent, well conceived and the hook is set quiet early. I enjoyed this story (even though my personal beliefs are deeply against this sort of thing.) I felt the narrator was very well suited to the tale, delivering just the right amount of mystery and suspense. Well done all!
