We came in peace. Lie.
We had no role in the Collapse. Lie.
I have always been honest. Lie.
I never lied to her. Truth.
Jax has her brother back, but even stuck in a tiny cabin with him, Flint, Peter, and her new-found Grandfather, she's never felt more alone. When Rym shows up pleading for Jax to come back to the city with him at Lir's request, it doesn't take much for her to decide to go get the answers she craves. But their reunion is cut short and Jax is forced to leave Lir behind to continue on to Bridgelake with some unexpected travel companions.
In near constant torture at the hands of his uncle, Lir hasn't seen daylight or linked to anyone in months. After a lifetime of connection, the pain and loneliness is almost too much to bear. But seeing Jax again, if only for a moment, gives him the hope and strength he needs to keep fighting. With the rest of the E'rikon blinded by Vitrad's lies, it's up to Lir and Rym to stop him.
Though Jax and Lir seem to be on two very different paths, their missions have more in common then they know. It's a race against time to stop the men who put everyone's lives at risk for greed and power. But the people they trust the most might be the very people working against them — and "family" doesn't mean what it used to.
How much will they have to lose to save the people they love? Can they even save each other?
