Wyl is a young rebel whose life of dangerous lies and hidden truths has cost him his childhood and his ability to trust. He is fanatically loyal to the rebel leader, a woman embroiled in a blood-feud with Trascolm's ruling clan. When he's not away spying, he's her secret bodyguard-she needs protection from her army of renegades and outlaws as much as she does from the bounty hunters and assassins sent by her archenemy. When the rebellion meets with disaster, the rebel leader's strategy changes. Wyl is thrust into a hostile royal court of underage teens-mere children, to his mind. He's expected to embrace this more civilized way of life, but all his brutally-honed instincts betray him and he makes enemies instead of friends. Wyl-a boy raised by outlaws-is in over his head and must somehow master the subtleties of courtly intrigue well-enough to keep the rebel leader and the rebellion alive, and do it without getting himself killed.
