A lawless wilderness. A polished court. Individual fares, each on a quest to expose a system of corruption.The desolate canyons of AlcoroA??and the people desperate enough to hide thereA??couldnA??t be more different from the opulent glass palace and lush forests of Moquoia. But the harsh desert and gleaming court are linked through their past, present, and future: a history of abductions in the desert to power MoquoiaA??s quarries and factories, and a bleak, inhumane future built on the sweat and sacrifice of these bond laborers. But events unfolding in the present could change everything. In the desert, outlaw LarkA??known to most as the Sunshield BanditA??has built a name for herself attacking slaversA?? wagons and freeing the captives inside. But while she shakes the foundation of MoquoiaA??s stratified society, she also has to fight to protect her rescueesA??and herselfA??from the unforgiving world around them. In the Moquoian court, young ambassador Veran hopes to finally make his mark by dismantling the unjust labor system, if he can navigate the strict hierarchy and inexplicable hostility of the prince. And caught in the middle of it all, Tamsin is trapped within four walls, the epicenter of a secret political coup to overthrow the Moquoian monarchy and perpetuate the age-old system of injustice. Separated by seas of trees and sand, the outlaw, the diplomat, and the prisoner are more connected than anyone realizes. Their personal fates might just tip the balance of power in the Eastern WorldA??if that very power doesnA??t destroy them first.
