Damien Flynn, once a conscientious politician, is now facing execution for supporting the cause of an oppressed people, the Ricchans. Betrayed by his peers, Damien now understands that while bleeding hearts don't make for good politics, he values his convictions more than ever. And those convictions have clashed against those held by the only world he's ever known, leaving Damien forced to make a choice between his past and his future—a decision he figures he'll never have to make. After all, the future is a luxury that dead men rarely enjoy.
But when Victoria Montgomery, the reluctant leader of an army consisting of little more than ragtag criminals and vagrants, realizes that she needs a catalyst to bring about the full-scale rebellion her people need to flourish, Damien's fortunes change.
With the fate of Riccha in their hands, Victoria and Damien must work together in an unlikely partnership of political maneuvering and pure mettle to win battles and turn hearts against Braiton, the colonial superpower that rules all.
In order for this revolution to succeed, Damien and Victoria must believe in each other—when they barely even believe in themselves.
