The city of Nike needs a hero. What it gets is a vengeful soldier, a plucky dodger, and a draco with attitude.
Wrongly convicted of treason, Gideon Quinn has spent six years harvesting crystal under the murderous suns of the Morton Barrens. The last thing he expects is for the general who first sentenced him to arrive with an offer of freedom, and the chance to clear his name. Not one to question honey in the comb, Gideon, and his pet draco, Elvis, take 'ship to Nike in search of answers. And possibly revenge.
Mia is one of the countless dodgers working the mean streets of Nike, treading a razor-sharp edge between fulfilling her love of books and pleasing her cruel hive-master. But when her fagin orders her to steal Gideon's draco, Mia is faced with a plot twist unlike any she's ever read.
Soon Gideon, Mia, and Elvis are on the run in a city steeped in corruption, while Gideon continues to hunt for a menace that could bring Fortune's new and fragile peace to an explosive end
