Set in a violent future world, when Saba's twin brother is snatched by mysterious black-robed riders, she sets out on an epic quest to rescue him.
"I ain't afeared of nuthin."
Saba's twin is golden. She is his living shadow. He is strong and beautiful. She is scrawny and dark. Nothing will separate them... Raised in isolated Silverlake, Saba is ignorant of the harsh and violent world beyond her home.
But when her twin is snatched by black-robed riders, red rage fills her soul. How will Saba find him in a wild, scorching and lawless land? Racing across the cruel dustlands to find him, she can spare no one. Not even the boy who saves her life. She must silence her heart to survive. Blood will spill.
Every step of Saba's journey sizzles with danger in this futuristic thriller, which beats with a powerful, red-blooded heart.
