In their new mountain stronghold, a battle rages for the lives and souls of the Amazons of Tristaine.

Brenna's new duties as a Clinic medic include monitoring the health of political prisoners after they've been interrogated. The extreme measures employed by Caster, the Clinic's director, are not supposed to distress Brenna—any such humanistic concerns have long been dismissed by the tyrannical City Government. But Brenna finds herself deeply conflicted by her first patient, Jesstin, a wild and rebellious warrior reputed to be descended from ancient Amazons. Through Jess, she learns of another way of life in the Amazon village of Tristaine, where freedom and passion are prized more highly than political power.
