What if an innocent boy discovered an ancient book and it possessed dark magic? Would that boy be able to control it? Or would the book subjugate his inherent goodness?

And what if that book was UNFETTERED?

THE UNLOCKED TOME is a short story�only 2800 words�that features the origin story of Lachlan Wood, a boy from a broken home who will figure prominently in a future Annwn Cycle novel. The short story will open the Signed & Numbered edition of UNFETTERED, an anthology featuring tales from some of the best fantasy writers working today.

Since the regular editions of UNFETTERED do not include THE UNLOCKED TOME, the short story is presented here for everyone to enjoy.
