Cerise Mar and her unruly clan are cash poor but land rich,
claiming a large swathe of the Mire, the Edge swamplands
between the state of Louisiana and the Weird. When her
parents vanish, her clanâ€™s long-time rivals are suspect
But all is not as it seems. Two nations of the Weird are
waging a cold war fought by feint and espionage, and their
conflict is about to spill over into the Edgeâ€”and Ceriseâ€™s
life . William, a changeling soldier who left behind the
politics of the Weird, has been forced back into service to
track down a rival nationâ€™s spymaster.
When Williamâ€™s and Ceriseâ€™s missions lead them to cross
paths, sparks flyâ€”but theyâ€™ll have to work together if they
want to succeedâ€¦and survive.
