This story follows five teenagers who are struggling to live their lives under the oppressive regime of a usurper king–and when they find they cannot, they rise up and start a revolution.

A rogue thief narrowly escapes arrest again and again as he takes revenge upon the soldiers and nobles who prey upon the weak.
A homeless girl hunts for her next meal and a way out of the city past the guards at the gate.
Four teenagers hide in the ruins, fugitives of the law working desperately to protect and feed the group of orphaned children in their care.
A clandestine organization of women with mysterious powers sends one of their own to serve as a spy in the royal court.
The last remnants of the royal family spread tendrils through the city’s vast criminal network, slowly enacting a decades-long vendetta.
And the man who usurped the crown sits uneasily on his throne, hanging onto his kingdom by a thread even as he seeks to create a new empire.
And all of them, though they might not know it, are searching for the same boy: the heir to the throne, missing since birth and about to come of age.
The people are waiting.
