Keira never dreamed that her happy childhood would be ripped away so brutally. But when her family is torn apart and her small village left in devastation, she joins her brothers in hiding. Her thirst for revenge quickly spreads among the group and they begin to train to be able to fight back. At seventeen, Keira becomes the unintentional face of the new rebellion, but she has no interest in spreading another futile uprising against the king. All she wants is the chance to kill the man she blames more than any other for her pain. Even if it kills her. (Companion story to Daughter of the Rebellion)
