Sixteen-year-old Charlotte isn't old enough to have witnessed the thunderous defeat of the American Revolution, but this resourceful young girl is suffering from its aftermath. As the daughter of resistance fighters, she and other refugees in this 1816 early steampunk world, are struggling to eke out a life in the dark shadow of the rapacious British Empire. It isn't easy: Just avoiding the robotic Imperial Labor Gatherers and the human-eating rats can drain your initiative. That changes with the arrival of a new exile with a frayed memory who carries the scent of secret that could change everything. An exciting series series starter from the author of the popular Nightshade novels.
