Altronne is the Last City, harried from within by a society of vandals, muckrakers, and killers who call themselves the Dandelion Knight. The Champions are Altronne's defenders, and Mireille Absolon is their newest recruit -- her body and mind made superhuman, her memories taken to keep her from using her new power for herself.
Much is not well in Altronne. The shadow government that controls the Champions has bloodily ousted its own leader; a capitalist-prince who funds sedition has eluded the police; the strange beings that support the city's unstable geology have begun to slip their chains. And the Dandelion Knight wants to give Mireille her memories back. No strings attached.
It's too good to be true, of course. But tampering with the Champions is high mischief -- and with high mischief come great spoils for the Champion who thwarts the plot...
THE DANDELION KNIGHT is a post-post-apocalyptic science fantasy. Its conclusion, THE FLAME BENEATH THE STONE, will appear in late 2014.
