The Underlings

YA Fantasy (Currently Editing)


When Drina was a baby, she was abandoned on the front lawn of a prestigious school. She was taken in and brought up there, shielded from the growing control of the occupying Malkans in the rest of the country. Whilst the Malkan Empire grew, Drina focused on her studies, blind to the outside world.


When Drina sees her one friend, Ernest the gardener, assaulted by Malkan officers, her eyes are opened to the world beyond the school’s walls. Plunged into a world of rebel factions, political plots and outcasts, Drina must learn how to speak truth to power whilst finding her own identity beyond the closeted environment she has always known.
