Betray your family. Save your world.
An old empire has fallen. Its former colonies are now on their own. Some flourish, some diminish, while others move to fill the power vacuum. On the ringed planet Hokkaido, where arable land is being poisoned at a stunning pace, one woman seeks the truth – even if it costs her family everything.
Kara Syung, an engineer and daughter to one of Hokkaido’s most powerful men, suspects not only her parents but other elite families who control the food supply of a scheme to enhance their wealth and status at the expense of a desperate population. Following leads found in the wake of her brother’s death, Kara must turn to allies who live in the shadows.
She has few weapons: A lifelong best friend and servant, a murderous immortal on a crusade of his own, a rogue from the old empire, and a snub-nosed laser pistol. Moreover, time is working against her: She is due to marry a man she does not love in seven days – whether she wants to or not. How much will Kara sacrifice to learn what is really happening on Hokkaido and beyond?
