Publisher Description

A fragile peace teeters on the brink of collapse; new players threaten the colonial world order in this award-winning debut historical fantasy novel.

Damien Flynn is going to die. And it's going to happen because he finally stood up for what's right.

After years of observing and taking part in the enduring corruption and oppression of the Ricchan people, Damien Flynn's conscience wakes. He pushes for the Ricchan right to a vote, for control of their own destiny.

He soon learns that bleeding hearts don't make for good politics, exchanging quills for shackles. Former friends and colleagues sentence Damien Flynn to death for treason.

With time running out, Damien Flynn only has one chance, one opportunity for survival, and it comes from one of the most unlikely sources.

Victoria Montgomery, the reluctant leader of an army composed of little more than ragtag criminals and vagrants, must make a change. And in Damien, she sees the catalyst to bring about the full-scale rebellion her people need to flourish. He is the key to bringing about a legitimate revolution that may have the strength to succeed where past attempts have failed.
All she need do is gamble on the unknown, gamble on the strength of Damien's morals and convictions and hope that she's judged him well, less the entire rebellion is forfeit.

Victoria and Damien must unite to save Riccha from Braiton's control.
In order for this revolution to succeed, these two seemingly unlikely partners must believe in each other. A tough task when they barely even believe in themselves.
Amidst the horrors of war, the cruelties of betrayal, and the unleashed wrath of long-held grievances, the righteousness and convictions of humanity will be tested like never before.

Will the courage and resilience of the oppressed be enough to overcome the tyranny of their oppressors? Or will the flames of conflict engulf everything in their path, leaving nothing but destruction in their wake? In this epic tale of struggle and survival, the fate of a world hangs in the balance.

Set in a richly imagined world of fantasy and history, this award-winning novel is a gripping tale of revolution, betrayal, and redemption. With its unforgettable characters, thrilling action, and poignant themes, it will captivate readers. Don't miss out on one of the most exciting fresh voices in historical fantasy.
