Crown of Dust
A generation after a savage civil war, Mata rules as Prince Regent. But even now, after years of peace, the festering wounds of the past remain. The Realm’s ancient religion wanes. A new creed rises. Treacherous lords lurk in the shadows, waiting for an opportunity to claw power, authority, and riches away from Mata. The Realm’s uneasy peace shatters when a foolish young lord rides against Mata in open rebellion. The wearied ruler must once more rouse his old body to defend his family, his people, and his right to rule. But in the red mist of battle, the lines between justice and evil blur.

She has no idea who’d do this for her, until they reveal their hand: they have a job for Holly. Recognizing her old life is over, she has no other choice. If only she knew how to steal a priceless jewel about to be moved off-planet. But as the screws tighten on her need for cash she remembers just who to ask.
