Unbound: The Wild Sun Book 2 by Ehsan & Shakil AhmadThis week, Patrick and Tracy welcome Ehsan & Shakil Ahmad, co-authors of Unbound: The Wild Sun Book 2.

About Unbound: The Wild Sun Book 2: Once kindled, the flames of hope are not easily extinguished. No longer bound to a life of forced labor in the enemy’s mines, Cerrin leads a small band of escaped slaves in search of a new home in the ancient forest where she was born. But freedom is not the same as victory. And death is never far behind. Soldiers of an advanced and ruthless empire are forever at their heels. Leading the pursuit is Count Talazeer, a vicious nobleman driven by a personal vendetta against Cerrin… and a desperate need for redemption in the eyes of his family and his people. Each day of survival is a victory. Turning to fight their enemy remains an impossible dream. And yet, even as death claims them one by one, the former slaves hold fast to faith in their gods and, above all, in Cerrin. And now, Cerrin will discover strange new allies–and enemies–are waiting for her people amidst the forest and beyond the stars. allies–and enemies–are waiting for her people amid the trees and beyond the stars.

About Ehsan & Shakil Ahmad: Ehsan and Shakil Ahmad simply love the art of storytelling—as audience or creators. It’s a passion they’ve shared since their childhood, growing up in New York City as the first-generation American children of immigrants from Pakistan.

At first, this passion drove the brothers in different directions in life. For Ehsan, it meant traveling across four continents to meet the people of countless cultures and hear their stories firsthand. For Shakil, it meant seeking a deeper understanding of human nature through degrees in psychology and social research.

In January 2019, Ehsan and Shakil signed with Uproar Books—the first authors to be offered a contract by the new publisher. Their debut novel Wild Sun launched in May 2019 and will be followed by two more books in the Wild Sun series.

Ehsan and his wife welcomed their first child into the world in 2018.
