In this future dystopia, eighteen year old Lugh has been kidnapped from his drought ridden ramshackle of a home in Silverlake by Lewis Ex Eye Vee who likes to call himself the Sun King of France even though he lives in North America. Lugh's twin sister Saba vows to save him even if she has to travel across the Sandsea Desert and beyond into unknown lands among savages, thieves and murderers. Saba knows her quest will test her in every way. However, she thinks nothing could be worse than living without her brother. Then she too is kidnapped, taken to the ironically named city of Hopetown, and brutally forced to cage fight in a coliseum for the entertainment of the twisted residents of Hopetown. Now Saba desperately needs to find a way to escape the Cage in order to save not only her life but the lives of those she loves.
