Recreance | Book One
A warrior who’s lost everything. A thief who works alone. Can two outcasts at odds join forces to save their people from a dark monstrosity?
Oren Hart has only ever known life within the domed colony of New Arcadia. But when his parents are executed by the tyrannical Patriarch, he must escape into the desolate wasteland beyond. Heartbroken and weary, he learns of a secret resistance group, and begins his training under a blademaster who hints at mysterious energy and impossible powers. Determined to prove his worth, Oren turns his gaze east—back toward the tyrant who destroyed his old life.
When Clementine’s closest friend vanishes without a word, she vows never to forgive him. With her home life in tatters, she soon finds herself stealing to survive…and becoming rather good at it. Against her better judgement, she infiltrates the Patriarch’s headquarters and uncovers a secret so dangerous, she too must escape into the wasteland. When she and Oren again cross paths, they must come to terms with years grown apart, and a monstrous new threat endangering everyone they left behind.
Against the Patriarch’s bloodthirsty forces, can two young outcasts protect their people, or will humanity’s last bastion become its final resting place?
