Shuki learns to manipulate his master. He learns to read and write, he gets his master into the habit of giving him large sums of money, and he makes friends with the Master's sons.
Shuki becomes more beautiful with every passing year. His master becomes more possessive, more jealous, and Shuki is guarded. When his master takes him to England, he escapes and starts a new life with the money he's saved. He is fifteen.
Shuki's story continues in 'The King's Favourite.'
The third book of the series is called 'To Love and to Protect.'
The publication date for this book is set at 17th October, 2014.
Early in his life, Shuki made a vow to himself never again to leave it too late to run. There were dangers at Naelahin, dangers because of who he was. But in a new place, a new home, where no-one knows his history, then he would be safe. Shuki has moved his family to rural Australia. There, he finds the peaceful life he wants.
For those interested, I have placed Shuki's new home between the small town of Uralla and the university city of Armidale, New South Wales. The towns have been fictionalised and renamed Bellerusse and Leverson. Shuki teaches at Leverson University.
Not all that I wrote as a fictional future will come true, of course. It is interesting that some things are already coming true.
I have set the publication date at 17th October, 2014, but it will be available on Smashwords probably a week or so before that date.
