 Synopsis:
Kaida grew up in two worlds--a child in the Manor raised by Sabah before she was granted Citzenship. But the only place she has ever felt like she's belonged is with Cedric and Guin, the boys she grew up with.

When Cedric's involvement in a rebel faction goes wrong, the Commission exiles her and holds Guin hostage. Now, she's on her own for the first time, and searching for the sister who left her behind and a princess who was stolen from the City--and then she stumbles across a face from the past.

Hawke has been an outcast since his Tribe died. When he finds Sabah's sister on the road, he agrees to help her. But as they search the wilds and grow closer, his disdain for her is slowly replaced by a deep attraction for the girl who faces every challenge so bravely.


And as the City's deadline dwindles, and the boy she loves hangs in the balance, Hawke is left to wonder if he is protecting her, or if he the biggest threat she will face.


 


EXCERPT

Its time. Our bags are packed, the pack horses laden with so many supplies, Im a little surprised and I feel vaguely guilty, like Hawke has lied or stolen from them.
Are you sure what we traded is worth all of this? I ask, my voice low. Hawke adjusts my pack once more, a bit heavier than Im used to carrying, and laughs.
Dont worry. They got much more than we did, in the long run.
I arch an eyebrow and he turns me. Say your goodbyes, little bird. Weve got a long way to go.
I look over my shoulder, at where Sabah is leaning against Arjun, his arm wrapped around her waist. She looks sleepy and sad, somehow. She detaches herself from Arjun and comes over to me, hugging me. The top of her head brushes against the underside of my chin.
When did the larger-than-life figure of my childhood become so tiny and frail? I hug her and she whispers, "Be careful, Kai. Don't be afraid to let the past go."
"I don't know what you mean," I answer.
She laughs, softly. "I see how you look at him. At what you aren't saying about Guin. It's not a crime to let go of what you thought you wanted in favor of what you need."
Involuntarily, my eyes go to Hawke. He's talking to Merc, but his gaze darts to me, questioning and warm. Something deep in my gut clenches and for the first time, I understand what Sabah did, all those years ago. I look back at her, and she squeezes my hand. "You can't live for other people, Kai. Not if it makes you miserable."
"Were you so miserable, with us?" I ask, but there's no judgement in my voice.
She shrugs. "No. But there is a fine line between unhappy and miserable. You deserve to be happy."
