The Stray is a second book in the ShaZha World of The Disenchanted Pet. It is currently in the beginning phase.
Andrea lives on the Earth in a society that is is ruled by the ShaZha, a hyper-intelligent race of alien beings who rule the planet under the guise of rehabilitating humanity. Not surprisingly, some humans under ShaZha rule are not satisfied with their pretense.
Andrea is a Prodigy, but she is not an obedient human. Bitter against her callous treatment by the masters, she lives in torment. Unfortunately, her rebellion is ineffective and ignored by her preoccupied captors due to her small size and lovely appearance.
One day, though, she hears the rumors of a human named Zarah who knows of the world outside the Prodigy community, and even of a society living free of the ShaZha. This discovery spurs her to form a daring plan to go stray. Will she escape from her stifling existence? Will the free world be everything she hoped for?
