Douglas, B. J. (2016). The Bound. Retrieved from

A low-tech fantasy novel. Follows both a group of transgender idealists planning a revolution, and the guards of the government they are working to overthrow.

A pending execution, a missing spirit, and an underground revolution... Two young friends are pulled away from home and from each other. Taken and trained by idealists on opposing sides of the coming war, both prepare for battle. Yedda owes her life to the patriotic city guard, but she has doubts about how they treat the people they're meant to protect. Corliss is raised by a group of revolutionaries--but once they've discovered what she is, they might view her as more weapon than human. On their paths to adulthood, both children struggle with identity, loneliness, and the landscape of a corrupt nation as they develop their own views on violence and justice. When the time comes to face each other, what will they believe?

“Ah, the wood Bound,” Sileas said, with a nod to the painting Corliss stood in front of. She spun, startled by the noise. “I saw it once when I was much younger,” Sileas continued. “I've never seen anything so beautiful or odd again. I had it drawn from my description.” The painting was delicately done in layers of richly pigmented oils. Not a brushstroke could be seen, and it glowed from within. A figure with emerald green skin slipped its way between trees. Its eyes were wide and dark as plums, its stomach round and swollen, its arms long and thin.
