Safety is an illusion.
We're back to where we started - two sisters living under a government we can't trust. The rest of our friends are either dead or missing.
Texas should be our haven, our escape from the British. But what if we've traded one prison for another?
There are larger things at work, more allies and enemies to be found. They all look the same to us. The Texans want us to fall in line. The rebels want us to fight. The Americans want us to leave them alone.
The colonies are a more dangerous place than we ever could have imagined, and we're caught in the middle. Not all of us are meant to be soldiers, but the time for indecision has passed. What do you call someone who doesn't trust the fight? A liability.
Sides must be chosen...bonds must be broken...alliances forged.
And the war begins.
