Life Is a Masquerade
I poured my heart out in pages, and it was my blood that was in my ink. I loved everything that was intertwined with writing: I loved the smell of ink, the rustle of paper, the dust that accumulated on the jackets of books. I loved creating: my characters were marionettes that danced on my string but like Pinocchio came into marvelous life at times….I loved them at those times. I strived to improve, day in and day out. It was the one thing that made me happy, the one thing I did with all my heart and soul and the one thing which nearly always alienated me from the rest of the world. It was a harmless, wonderful talent: that was what I'd thought.
I was wrong.
Life seemed like a masquerade ball most of the times: nearly always I hid under masks carefully created by society and put into frames of acceptability and normalcy. Nearly always tears filled my eyes as people walked in and out of my life seeing only the hard masks that society imposed on me, and not what I was or who I was.

Sandburn Trilogy Prologue
The hot desert air stings my eyes, and the metal links of the chain the jailers put around my ankles grow hot. There is sand in my hair and my eyes and a whole parched desert in my mouth, and it hurts to speak. I take a sharp, difficult breath, coughing as sand enters my nose and forces its way down my throat, then I lean to the ground and dry-heave, because there is really nothing left in me to throw up.
The landscape before me is stark, a strange coalescence of sand the color of molten gold and a blue sky flecked with the pristine white of clouds. There is nothing to see in either direction for miles, except the long, snaky black line of the railway tracks running across the desert- the last stretch of railway in the New Union, and an occasional odd-shaped rock slowly weathering to nothingness above the simmering sand, beneath the scorching eye of the summer sun.
A sort of mist rises in front of my eyes. How long am I meant to stand here?
It has been two hours since the large, slack-

About Sandburn

Sandburn is actually the first part of a three part series called the Sandburn Trilogy. It is in the genre of dystopian fiction with a subplot of romance and a coming of age theme.
The world in Sandburn is parallel to our own but a little more advanced in technology. Sandburn basically happens in an area called the Stronghold Civilization. Stronghold Civilization is ruled by a cruel Government which is almost hierarchical, controlled by a family called the Emeraudes. The Government is oppressive and controls through advanced drugs and taxes, and is often opposed by the Rebels headed by Acier Foxspur.


Sandburn follows the story of three main characters hailing from the desert village of Nashon- seventeen year old village outcast Hala Knawel, the main character, who lives with a slightly mentally unstable mother and her brother Whin; her best friend and local mechanic Alesan Roé and the spoiled village beauty Liana Sage.
