Synopsis:  A free YA short story - what would you pay for the chance to escape?

Jun Bei, Cole, Anna, Leoben, Ziana. Five children with extraordinary potential.
They don't get many visitors at the remote laboratory where they live under the eye of legendary geneticist, Lachlan Agatta. The man and woman who arrive are nothing like the others.
They're from Cartaxus and offer the children something rare and unfathomable: escape.
But freedom means different things to the five children. For one of them, getting want they want may mean betraying everyone else.

About the Author: Emily Suvada was born and raised in Australia, where she went on to study mathematics and astrophysics. She previously worked as a data scientist, and still spends hours writing algorithms to perform tasks which would only take minutes to complete on her own. When not writing, she can be found hiking, cycling, and conducting chemistry experiments in her kitchen. She currently lives in Portland, OR, with her husband.

My Review: This little story really doesn't add anything to the main story of This Mortal Coil and I don't really think that you will miss out on anything if you skip it.  It does give us a small look in each of the kids POVs about what they went through about 7 years or so before the main story.  It gives us a little insight into what was going on.  Personally, I would have rather liked a story about when they left the facility.
