Overview

Seeds Among the Stars, Book 1

approx. 100,000 words (400 pages)

Born in the abandoned subway shafts beneath First City, Trina measures life in the coin she steals from her wealthy father's people living above. She gives little weight to her dying mother's fairy tales about how her father will rescue Trina and her twin sister, taking them away from this planet. Yet the stars catch her attention every time she goes to the surface.

Trina is the protector, a role she created more from heroic tales in books her father gave them than anything in a shafter's life. When she sees drunken aristocrats harassing laborers, she can't turn away even though attacking them carries a death sentence. Her paternal grandfather discovers Trina before the enforcers can and offers everything she has ever desired--safety for her family and a way off Ceric.

Can she trust their family connection, or will the price of her dreams be more than Trina is willing to pay?
