She risks losing he life above-ground, in the city she loves, and for what? Possibly harming the innocent if she remains hidden below...
Trapped in a foreign Underground world, Taya battles inner demons and alienation as the man she promised to protect, to love, remains firmly planted in the government's cross-hairs; hell bend on fullfilling his destiny to change the world. Constantly accosted by a fanatic sect of the Followers of Light, praising her as a false goddess, Taya searches for something to return a sense of meaning and purpose in her life. As her skepticism for the impending coup grows so too does Gerrund's lack of trust, undermining not only her sense of self-worth but their ability to overthrow a corrupt government.
Even as Taya desperately works to establish a communication network spanning the Deserts, in an effort to keep a promise she never should have made, her past interferes causing any sense of the future to spiral out of control. It is up to Taya to fix herself and her fractured relationships in order to embrace her destiny and help two very different men attempt to alter the course of history.
