Overview

Having survived Rondo's destruction, sixteen-year-old Rags has been taken captive by the Kingdom and sentenced to 'rehabilitation' at the Kingdom's Threshing Floor, a notorious prison camp for hardened criminals. Those who refuse to serve the Kingdom go in...no one comes out.

Faced with this nightmarish reality, Rags is forced to use everything she knows as a rustler to survive against starvation, a cruel ward master, and torture at the hands of the Kingdom's ruler, Hyperion. Given only two options--death, or conformation to the Kingdom's ways--she's forced to play the Kingdom's twisted game.

With the help of the Kingdom's second-in-command, Henrick Oreson, and its charismatic luresman, Colton Caelan Fieldson, Rags must find a way to play a convincingly false role she was never meant to play and show the Kingdom she can be 'rehabilitated' to its standards. But with the deciding evaluation rigged in the Kingdom's favor, failure is imminent...unless she can find a way to turn lies into truth and achieve the impossible: actually, escape the Threshing Floor.

About the Author

Kathryn Lee Martin, known as 'Ryn' by friends and colleagues, spends her days saddling up the literary horse and hitting the "what if" trails on a quest to tell the outlaws' and underdogs' stories. Not one to shy away from the darker side of stories for the older young adult audience, her works often explore impossible odds and dire futures, falling into a fusion of post-apocalyptic science fiction meets the gritty lawlessness of the old west with a dash of fantasy and steampunk. Putting her unfortunate characters in situations where faith and fighting often go hand in hand, she's not afraid to make things difficult for them and when she's not corrupting society on paper, she's usually leading the rebellion to save it.

An avid outdoorswoman at heart, Kathryn spends her days living a quiet, faith-filled life on her family's small farmstead where she can usually be found working in her vegetable garden, spending time with her family, and playing the role of 'critter mom' to a border collie, several cats, a goat, and a donkey. Prior to choosing to follow her dream of becoming an author, she spent almost a decade joyfully working at a small town, local gourd farm as a parts maker, part of the finishing department, and a proud member of its seasonal field crew.
