My name is Maxton and I’m a trader.
I live on a soulless planet where gravity, oxygen, and everything else are sold to the highest bidder on the black market. People are sold on the black market, too. You have to work really hard not to become one of those people. Pay your taxes, keep your friends and family close, and more than anything else—don’t get caught by the Militia. But all the rules changed for me the day I found her.
My name is Sophelia and I’m a stowaway.
I’ve been a slave for almost as long as I can remember. Waiting for the one day, one second, for my proprietor to turn his head so I could run and never look back. Now I'm on the run. And on a planet where no one is on your side and people would turn you in for a good meal or a piece of a silver, being on the run on Landu is the last place you want to be. Until he found me.
I won't survive without him.
I can't breathe without her.

Amazing, surprising read.
OMG. Yes, I said it. OMG. What a cliff hanger! Yes, there is one. But it is soooo worth it. From page one I could not put this book down. Such an amazing world that was created. I was surprised by some of the darkness that is in the story but without it there can not be the light or the hope. Set in the prospect of an unknown but all too possibly real future it is scary to think what our society could turn into. Once again Shelly has pulled at my heart strings in all the right places.
