She's a stone cold killer, a rebel and a librarian ...Raised on the library planet of Rebus, Artemis McIvor has a love of books in a future where reading is a lost art. Unfortunately, she's also been imprisoned for a string of brutal murders she didn't commit. Not that she hasn't killed people. She just didn't kill these people. A war is coming and Artemis will find that her talents will be in high demand. But she has debts to pay and when they come due she will have a choice: fight for her freedom, or die a slave.
