When the roaming ocean passes Varasay Mountain, lowland villagers shelter in the wealthy mountain city. Nerene always dreads those months, for the city barracks are essentially a prison. Yet this year is even worse than usual; city officials are forcing all villagers to work in dangerous factories. Nerene tries to escape with her best friend, Sande, but when their plans unravel and he’s arrested, she turns to the only person who can help: Lord Osperacy, a powerful, world-traveling thief. Lord Osperacy’s willing to save Sande, but in exchange, Nerene must agree to work for him—and she soon realizes that working alongside the thief is far more treacherous than any factory.
