Can she trust Tobin, a kind-hearted outcast soldier with ties to the desert dwellers?
Join Adala as she seeks to free herself and her brother from the clutches of an outcast leader determined to push Shem towards a frightening destiny.

Family. Sacrifice. Treason.
Adala and her brother Shem barely escaped Gerstadt with their lives, but safety has come at great cost. The trauma of battle has made young Shem a prisoner to his own mind, unaware of his surroundings. Tobin’s fate in the battle-stricken city is unknown, and Adala begins to fear the worst.
With the support of Sarah and Captain Konrad, Adala launches a campaign to rally military support for the cause of reclaiming Gerstadt, secretly hoping to reunite with Tobin if he still lives.
Sailing from city to city, Adala’s hope begins to crumble. She discovers her home empire is on the brink of another war, and the lords of allied cities are unwilling to lend their support. To make matters worse, she is plagued by the magnetic presence of Gabe, a sailor with ties to her reckless past. Care as she may for Tobin, she is confused to find herself drawn more and more toward Gabe and the life she thought she left behind.
In a race against death, Adala’s only salvation lies in discerning friend from foe. But in the murky waters of the ocean, how can she tell?
