Descripción del producto
Trina dreams of escaping the colony of Ceric and joining the spacer guilds, but it's just that: a dream.
Reality is a fight for survival in the abandoned subway tunnels beneath First City. Her father may be a polit, the wealthiest of the surface people, but she's been raised by her shafter mother, taught to thieve by her friend, and mastered knives on her own.
Even though her mother clings to the idea that her polit lover will rescue them from this life, Trina knows better. But when staking out a square during Festival, she catches the attention of her wealthy grandfather. Her life is about to change, but the price of starting over may be higher than she's willing to pay.

Biografía del autor
Margaret McGaffey Fisk is a born storyteller whose tales often cross genres and worlds to bring the events and characters to life. She currently writes romance, science fiction, and fantasy but will go wherever the story takes her. A daughter of diplomats, her early years were filled with many cultures, those very much alive and those long turned to dust, as well as people who both pondered the great thoughts and were grand pranksters. Whether from wild adventures into the desert to climb sand mountains, poking around little known archeological sites, or visiting bazaars and inner cities, she came out of that time with a love of culture and an all too sharp awareness of culture clash. She currently lives in a Nevada desertscape with her husband, and a rotating collection of cats and sons. When not exercising her creative muscles, she has been known to tame the relatives of beasts in the wild—feral cats. In a different time, you’d find her before a bonfire or with a mug of ale and a lute spinning tales for all who are in earshot. Now, though, you can read her explorations of loyalty, love, and conflict wherever you might be. Her newsletter is published monthly with questions for readers, notes on what she's publishing or working on, and excerpts of works in progress. Her website is: http://margaretmcgaffeyfisk.com
