It's been 11 years since a nuclear disaster drove much of the population underground, leaving Caelin and her younger sister Mardy topside. When a handsome stranger named Jate saves Caelin’s life, he brings the sisters to rebel turf where plans are being hatched to conquer the Undercity. The rebels preach good life for the masses, and it seems Caelin and Mardy have found a safe haven at last.

But as Caelin is drawn deeper into the rebel's inner circle, Jate seems more determined to push her away. When Caelin discovers the harsh price of loyalty, the rebel's dream becomes a nightmare that sends Mardy on a dangerous mission to the Undercity. Caelin must determine who to trust before Mardy and the entire population of the Undercity are wiped out.

Everything should be perfect in the Undercity, where Caelin and her younger sister Mardy are safe from the radiation topside. But safety feels more like prison. The Undercitizens aren’t exactly welcoming, and Lucio and his Impartialists continue to pound the city’s barrier, more scavs flocking to their army every day. Then Mardy goes behind Caelin’s back to accept a government assignment to spy on the Impartialists. In spite of the danger, Caelin goes after her.

Once more in the camp of the man who killed her best friend, Caelin must convince Lucio of a loyalty she’s renounced in order to bring Mardy home. It doesn’t help that Lucio suspects Caelin still has feelings for Jate, the special forces officer who betrayed him, or that Lucio’s suspicions are right.

As her cover story unravels, Caelin discovers Lucio’s true plan for taking over the Undercity. Her desperate attempt to protect Mardy backfires, and Jate is caught in the storm of Lucio’s revenge. Caelin can’t rescue the man she loves without abandoning Mardy to the Impartialists. How will she live with herself if she makes the wrong choice?

Forgotten Embers
Alswyn has lived in a cloistered sanctuary for nearly a year, building a new life for herself in the land of her exile. But when King Ghalad's intended bride falls prey to the evil magic of ash sorcery, Alswyn must use knowledge from her dark past to undo the magic before the countryside is plunged back into war. Unfortunately, digging up the bones of Alswyn's past may well prove fatal to her soul.

Allure of the Goddess
When King Ghalad goes missing, the peace treaty balances on a sword edge as his enemies threaten to take over the kingdom. Alswyn discovers the remains of ash sorcery in his chambers and determines to bring him home by traveling to the formidable Plains of Dera, ruled by the goddess of ash magic. The rescue mission gets complicated when Alswyn runs afoul of Cynet, her former betrothed, and the goddess Dera herself. They will both do anything to ensnare Alswyn once more in ash magic.

Sanctuary Defiled
A mysterious illness threatens the lives of Alswyn's friends, and the sanctuary is placed under quarantine. But there is no stopping the disease, especially when victims begin to morph into vaylah, bird-like servants of the evil goddess Dera. Those left alive blame Alswyn for the sanctuary's ruin, and she must overcome her religious aversions in order to enter the holiest shrine, where answers await. Will her submission to the gods prove enough to save those she loves?

Quest for Salvation
For ash magic crimes, Alswyn is sentenced to the deadly ritual of a Challenge. It is only through the intervention of an unlikely ally that Alswyn survives. To escape, she is forced to take on the form of King Ghalad's intended bride, a disguise that leaves her heart tangled inextricably with his. Together, they embark on a quest to find the Lost God, a deity forgotten by all but the oldest legends, and the only power that can restore Alswyn's friends to their true form. But will her web of lies and deceit prove to be the downfall of the quest?
