Jake is a tribal prince-turned-chief whose extraordinary skills in battle make him more valuable alive than dead to his enemy - so long as he is willing to cooperate. For the sake of his people's safety, Jake consents to becoming a slave, but he soon finds the yoke hard to bear. When he is invited to join an underground rebellion, he jumps at the chance.
Meanwhile, a woman named Anika has a complicated history. She seems to be a slave, but she gets away with things no other slave can - such as humiliating the king's own son. Her sympathies lie with the rebels, yet she refuses to take part.
Who she is and where she came from are questions Jake must answer, for she is the key to not only the rebellion, but also the fates of two kingdoms.
