Mature Readers. In the Lands of High Adventure, brave bands of heroes undertake dangerous quests in search of fame and fortune. The exploits of these fearless explorers, who dare delve into the deepest of dungeons, will be sung about by the bards for eons. This is not their story. No, this is a tale of what happens when well-intentioned groups of would-be adventurers recruit the wrong kind of “hero”…the dreaded Murder Hobo. Selfish assassins who thrive on illicit acts and unprovoked bursts of violence, these agents of chaos can foil even the best-laid plans. Beaten, Broken and Buggered follows the exploits of Drunk-o and Nymph-o, a pair of Murder Hobos with different methods, but the same goal…to keep all the loot for themselves.

Then ISIS invades Mosul.  Yasmeen’s Shia family barely escapes a close death while Yasmeen gets captured by terrorists who execute her uncle right before her eyes. Yasmeen is sold to an ISIS fighter as a slave and must relinquish her innocence in order to save her three new Yazidi friends who are punished with starvation for attempting to help her escape after failing to kill her captor. Two years later, Yasmeen is reunited with her family in the United States. Her parents are so happy to be reunited with Yasmeen that they fail to see the state of depression that she has fallen into after two years of slavery under the ISIS terrorist regime in Mosul and the torments that she had to endure. Now faced with a new life without the luxuries that she had grown accustomed to in Iraq before ISIS, Yasmeen must learn to survive in a society that both fears and hates her and must overcome the horrors of the past in an attempt to find herself again. Powerfully written by Iraqi immigrant, Saif A. Ahmed, YASMEEN is a dramatic coming of age drama in a time of war.
