Nuetierra. An alien world where twin moons light the night and massive air-breathing jellyfish float through violet skies. Nue Bayona. A gaslit, steam-powered city caught between the iron fist of a despot and the bloody fist of a terrorist. Deanna is the daughter of Eduard Hernaan, former Alcalde of Nue Bayona. Six years ago, her stepmother Lourdessa led a brutal political coup against her father. She now rules as dictator while Deanna’s father languishes in prison. The common citizens chafe beneath Lourdessa’s yoke and yearn for their lost democracy. Threatened by Deanna’s popularity, Lourdessa arranges for her assassination. The attempt fails and Deanna escapes. Cast adrift in a hostile wilderness, Deanna has a decision to make: remain in exile, or join ex-cop Gomaz and his comrades in a near-hopeless plan to rid Nue Bayona of its cruel dictatress-her own stepmother. But is Dee brave enough to embark on the road to revolution?
