To escape capture by Imperial soldiers, 16-year-old Eridale Storm leaves the only
home she’s ever known and drags her younger sister into the wilds of
Mericon—the Empire that formed when America collapsed. Hoping to find safety
with their mother who disappeared when Eridale was three, the girls follow
clues that lead them across the country, but the empire hounds their every
step.

The journey draws Eridale deeper into the conflict between the Empire and the
rebel Freedom Fighters, producing questions about Eridale’s heritage, questions
no one wants to answer.

Caught between the threads of deception, rebellion, and betrayal, Eridale
struggles to find out who she is. The answers she finds could lead the country
back to freedom or shackle them under the imperial throne forever.

This is book 1 of a 4 book series and not a stand-alone book.

 

Snippet:
“Who’s there?” I call
out.
            No one
answers.
            “I know
you’re there.” My announcement is ignored. Alone, unarmed, and naked, I’m not
much of a force to reckon with.
            I move
silently through the water, keeping only my head above the surface until I
reach the edge of the pool where I left my robe. Though I
’m still
in the water, I pull my robe in and wrap it around my body before moving back
into the steam.

 

            Seconds
tick by, and my heart hammers in my chest. I move to the right and hear the
tiniest whoosh. A pinch in my neck brings my hand up, and a small dart falls
into my palm. My brows furrow for a second before the room starts spinning. I
slosh through the water, trying to reach the edge, and my legs give out. Water
envelopes my body, and darkness claims me. My last cognizant thought is I’m
going to drown
