Oyza Serazar: captured when she was young, she dreams of escaping and finding the Ungoverned, who are rumored to be leading a rebellion from deep inside a swamp…

But when she and her cell mate Yars escape, they learn a secret that changes their lives forever. What will they find? What dangers await? What new friends will they meet?

And when they’re on the run, will Liviana—Oyza’s old master’s daughter and now a powerful military commander—find them first?

Rebellion is always right.

Oyza yearns for revolution—an impossible dream with her lifetime prison sentence. Fueled by the destruction of her home and years of servitude, she reads the smuggled texts of the Ungoverned and dreams of a future that can never be. But the arrival of a new prisoner, Yars, reignites Oyza’s courage. She finds herself capable of more than she ever imagined.

To fight their way to their own freedom, they must fight for something bigger: freedom for their homeland. Between an invasion by godless gunwielders, a heartless commander who’s determined to kill Oyza, and webs of secrets and lies woven through their world, it will take all their strength and wits to survive. When blood is spilled, how much will be their own?
