Citizens who report to work on time, obey the Overlord's laws, and stay off the Synbot's radar, live long lives. Long, dull, monotonous lives. It's not a bad plan for someone with a hidden, emotion-based ability to trigger earthquakes. In a world pitted against her, sixteen-year-old Rena Moon strives for a life beyond working herself to death at the factory. Seeing an alternative, she risks selling relics from the forbidden lands at Market. It becomes the worst decision she ever made. Someone kidnaps her best friend in exchange for the one thing that would end her oppression. Driven by loyalty, Rena and seventeen-year-old Nevan Jelani, soulful composer, green thumb extraordinaire, and the secret love of her life, plot to rescue her friend and reclaim her salvage. Still, the thought lingers whether Nevan is a true hero or another thief waiting for his chance at her loot. Events spin wildly, deepening Rena's suspicions and pushing her limit of control. With more than her chance for freedom at stake, she must decide if she's willing to kill to protect what's precious to her. For once, the Overlord isn't holding all the power, but can Rena live with being reduced to what she's trying so hard to escape?
