In a world where a little knowledge truly is a dangerous thing, Candice “Dice” Bodger is about to get an awful education.
Employed by the military as an airship captain, Dice knows exactly as much as she needs to get her cargo from one field to the next. Information is fiercely regulated, and sharing of knowledge is punishable by death. Dice has no interest in learning until she begins an illicit romance with the engineer assigned to her ship. The romance is shortlived when the man she loves is captured and Dice’s crime comes to light. Dice, though spared execution, is forced to give up her ill-conceived child moments after his birth. Despondent, she is given a new lease on love when she falls for the midwife who helped her through the pregnancy.
Marked as a criminal and deciding she might as well earn her tarnished record, Dice tracks down the group of rebels her lover belonged to and offers her services as a smuggler. In exchange, the rebels agree to help her find classified information that could lead her to finding her son.
Her work as a smuggler frequently puts her in danger but Dice soon discovers the true cost of crime when someone close to her is fatally injured. Faced with losing yet another loved one, Dice decides to take drastic measures that could destroy the entire rebellion… or put an end to the government’s tyranny once and for all.

About the Author
Geonn Cannon was born in a barn and raised to know better than that. He was born and raised in Oklahoma where he’s been enslaved by a series of cats, dogs, two birds and one unexpected turtle. He’s spent his entire life creating stories but only became serious about it when he realized it was a talent that could impress girls. Learning to write well was easier than learning to juggle, so a career was underway. His high school years were spent writing stories among a small group of friends and reading whatever books he could get his hands on.
Geonn was inspired to create the fictional Squire’s Isle after a 2004 trip to San Juan Island in Washington State. His first novel set on the island, On the Air, was written almost as a side project to another story he wanted to tell. Reception to the story was so strong that the original story was put on the back burner to deal with the world created in On the Air. His second novel set in the same universe, Gemini, was also very well received and went on to win the Golden Crown Literary Society Award for Best Novel, Dramatic/General Fiction. Geonn was the first male author to receive the honor.
While some of his novels haven’t focused as heavily on Squire’s Isle, the vast majority of Geonn’s works take place in the same universe and have connections back to the island and its cast of characters (the exception being the Riley Parra series). In addition to writing more novels based on the inhabitants of Squire’s Isle, Geonn hopes to one day move to the real-life equivalent to inspire further stories.
Geonn is currently working on a tie-in novel to the television series Stargate SG-1, and a script for a webseries version of Riley Parra.
