Brenorra Warring's father is going crazy. That's the only conclusion Bren can come to when a fire destroys everything they own, and his only answer is to take a job in the uncivilized Coalition Colonial Region on the other side of the ocean. Then disaster strikes at sea, and Bren is left with nothing but the clothes on her back, the things in her father's satchel, and the discovery that someone powerful was willing to kill to keep her father from reaching his destination.

Running for her life, Bren makes an alliance of necessity with two very different men. The first is fighting the same shadow organization that took her father, determined to tear it down no matter the cost. The other is a brilliant but icy war hero who has been branded a wanted man by his commanding officers. Both are enemies in their own right, and both have their own reasons for finding Bren.

Dragged into a terrifying game of cat and mouse, with no idea who to trust, Bren's journey will take her through harrowing navy battles and into a world of black-market slavery. Because, whether she's ready or not, the freedom of thousands now depends on her ability to keep from getting caught.

In this spellbinding debut, Pennymaker blends the best of several genres, weaving a touch of steampunk flair through a wide-ranging political thriller, with edge-of-your-seat action, richly imagined settings, and amazing characters.

About the Author

A. E. Pennymaker has been writing seriously since the age of twelve, and studied English and Secondary Education in college. (Back when the earth was young and rocks were but a twinkle in the mantle's eye.)
She has also won awards for her artwork. (This doesn't have much to do with writing, but it explains her obsession with world building.)
Anna currently resides in Wisconsin, USA, with two gigantic dogs, five children, a forest of assorted houseplants, and her husband. (Not necessarily in that order.)
She enjoys: adventuring through the countryside; soundtracks, classical music and a random selection of rock; anything coffee related; tea; and doing the laundry. (Also, sarcasm.)

You can find her on her website:

She also has free rough drafts of some of her WIPs on Wattpad, which she uses as a gigantic Petri dish/munitions testing ground:
