The country's fate rests on a young tunnel runner's shoulders. Lord Andrew Chattergoon is the spark that will ignite the long-awaited rebellion.
To find the true King's hiding place, he must navigate an ancient and deadly maze of underground tunnels, using only the knowledge his legendary father has passed down to him.
For his first mission to succeed, Chattergoon must battle giant, poisonous creatures, overcome dangerous bandits, escape unstable passageways and win over mysterious desert nomads. Failure is not an option.
The Tunnel Runner is a short story set in the same world as epic fantasy Melokai (In the Heart of the Mountains #1). The action takes place twenty-five years before the events of the novel.
