In Defiance of a God
Mel falls through the ice while fishing on the river and washes up in a world like nothing she has ever seen before. Like the bloom of a beautiful flower that opens to reveal blight, this city is not the paradise it seems. She joins a band of rebels seeking to bolster the oppressed, slaves and those laboring in community service for crimes against a mad Get and a corrupt Council. To survive she must elude the enforcers of the city, but after growing up evading manticores, how dangerous can the Civil Service be?
