Martha and her brother were born in the Outlands. They have only heard stories of Invictus, the grand capital city; they have never seen it for themselves. But when their general is taken hostage, Martha and Asher have no choice but to make their way through the monumental steel gates that enclose the city, and bring him home.
Their valiant rescue attempt will teach them one thing: the darkest of Invictus City’s secrets – underground prisons, mutated monsters, psychotropic brainwashing – have been kept hidden behind the wall.
There, they will face the horrors that they never knew existed.
