The Republic has fallen down. June is back at the good graces of the Republic as one of the Princeps-Elect while Day is assigned in a high level military position. They are working together to save the Republic from the Colonies from taking over.
But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them: just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything.
