In love with a girl from school and the man hired to torture her, Einan is sent reeling when she thinks them dead. Destitute, she finds herself responsible for protecting children left uncared for in the wake of the Cedesian War.
Poor children are disappearing all over the city. While struggling to keep them safe, Ein accidentally sparks a rebellion. Will love find her again in the chaos, or will she die a martyr?
Warning: Dark themes, kink, dubious consent, Stockholm Syndrome, sexual assault. May be disturbing to some readers.
“Children aren’t vermin. Even when they’re poor,” I whispered, my cold rage urging me to draw my dagger. “We might be Dust, but we are real people who live and love, hope and toil. The only difference between us and you other castes is luck.”
“Well, mother, your luck is finished here. Get out.” He moved forward, his sword raised to menace me.
I drew myself up and spat on him. “Not without my boy, and any other stolen children you might have in there.”
The book will be available on Smashwords and other retailers again on April 20th, 2015
