After years of fighting a war she doesn't believe in, Jade Cavvar is being awarded for her efforts. But when an assassin makes an attempt on her life, Jade is forced down a path she never dreamed she'd walk. Stolen away from her home, she is brought to the land of her enemy, where she must discover her reason for living and scramble to find a way to stop the war before it ends in the death of millions.
And while Jade battles for freedom, her best friend, Aris Sell, must grapple with her disappearance. Aris' paranoia forces her to scrutinize those she's battled alongside for years, and when she unveils a secret hidden from the masses, she triggers irreversible events that threaten everyone in the Known Galaxy.
