"Allegiance" is Alexis' story. It is a short novelette, complete at a little over 7k words, but it leads into "Deprogrammed", the next installment in Emile's story.
I had a lot of fun writing this one.
There is a lot that is revealed in this short, so if you're planning on continuing the series, this is a must read.
As for the ending? Well, you'll have some answers by May. ;)
