Blurb (rom Goodreads):
Errik has been a prisoner--and alone--for a long, long time. He lives for the moment each day when the window of his dungeon cell shines a bit of light onto his bearded face.
But everything changes when he gets a new neighbor--a young girl with a voice as beautiful as the springrise.
They both know the rules: No singing. No speaking. Voices are dangerous. But they can't help themselves. And soon enough, Errik begins to remember himself, why he's here in this dark place, and why his captors will stop at nothing to ensure his silence.
My rating: 6.5 out of 10 stars

This is a short story about two ‘music mages’ in a prison, and how difficult it is for them to resist singing – because if they sing the guards will kill them.
It is atmospheric, and the author manages to effectively build a small world inside the one prison cell in which the story takes place.
Well worth a read. Grab it while it’s free!
