Within Greylands, a city crippled by recession and oppressed by a corrupt police force, a starving seventeen year old Alexis fights to survive. When her brother is killed on a food raid, she has two choices: life in prison for shoplifting, or escaping to the Shadows, an underground world of thieves, scavengers, and cons. But after a member of the city's elite is murdered, the Shadows faces extinction as the law seeks to lay the blame at its door. Their survival rests on Alexis' shoulders as she finds herself in the middle of a deadly conspiracy. Truths are revealed and alliances are tested in this collection of serial stories. Nine unique authors come together to create a story that proves even the darkness is worth fighting for.
