Discovering Fire (Eshe: Champion of the Core - Book 1)
There's a voice in the fire. Are you listening?
Eshe Ahikiwe is a 10-year-old surviving violent conflict in the Eastern Rift of Africa. While rebel groups recruiting child soldiers plague her family’s escape to Kenya, their love for one another gives them the strength to persevere. Traveling through the harsh Ugandan countryside, Eshe feels a pull within the flame, but cannot quite pinpoint the source. When trouble finds her and she thinks she might lose her courage, nature reminds her that she must carry on—not only for herself, but also for her family. Through trials, triumphs, and great loss, Eshe quickly learns that the fire is her friend.
Discovering Fire is an emotionally gripping novella that highlights the moments in Eshe’s childhood that shape her journey into becoming Champion of the Core.
This trilogy is the first of seven installments for the CHAMPION collection! Each Champion will get their own backstory that leads into Hall of Mosses.
