My country is in shambles.
An epidemic plagues my home, turning friends into enemies, spouses into threats and neighbors into snacks.
Now, it's up to me and fifteen other surly teenagers to aid our last hope of survival in containing this new terror.
Everyone on my team has a job.
The King and Queen guard our ward, ensuring his safety. The Rooks, Bishops and Knights take their shots from a distance, only charging in if the need arises. But the Pawns... we're on the front lines.
Sacrificial lambs, so to speak.
But sometimes a lamb doesn't want to be sacrificed. Sometimes... a lamb is strong enough to survive the slaughter.
The resilient lamb.
The Blood Pawn.

About the Author
Nicole Tillman is an author who hasn't always had a love of reading. As a child, she struggled to string words together and would hide in the back of the classroom with her head down in hopes that the teacher would forget she existed. Eventually, she was introduced to a young adult series by a family friend and her love of reading bloomed.
Nicole now weaves her own stories, content to lose sleep in order to write both contemporary romance and thriller/suspense novels. She lives in the Ozarks of Missouri with her husband, two sons, and two dogs.
Nicole has an Associates Degree in General Studies though Missouri State University and was on her way to completing her Bachelors in Creative Writing when she decided to take a sabbatical to focus on work and her family. Now a stay at home mother, she dedicates her time to her boys, writing, and photography.
