Series: Internment Chronicles, #1.5
Before Morgan, there was Daphne, the girl who asked too many questions and changed everything… This original enovella set in the world of The Internment Chronicles is a gripping prequel to Perfect Ruin.
In this look back at Daphne, before her subversive paper led to her murder by order of the king, Daphne witnesses her seven-year-old sister Amy having a seizure-like event, a result of injuries sustained when she wandered too close to the Edge. Government doctors insist these seizures are punishment for Amy’s bad behavior, but Daphne disagrees. Obsessed with finding out what lured her sister out there to the Edge to begin with, Daphne leads Judas, her betrothed, a young man with his own secrets, on an expedition near the Edge to reconstruct her sister’s fateful event. But how close is too close?
