It has been more than a thousand years since the third world war ravaged the planet near the start of the twenty-first century. All that remains is one habitable land mass ruled by four very different divisions; nothing is certain, especially peace. Anastasia lives in the Mountain Division under the rule of the cruel Lord Byron, a king whom she reluctantly serves in exchange for room and board. When her brother, Zephyr, returns from a trade journey empty-handed, Anastasia must swear herself to the king to save her brother. Forced to defend herself against his unwanted advances, Anastasia is branded for treason and imprisoned. But as soon as she discovers her brother's mutilated body in another cell, Anastasia escapes to the South Division, where she secures a job, finds friendship with an unlikely band of thieves, and meets a young, determined king. Escape is the tale of one woman's dangerous journey to seek freedom in a world emaciated by time, war, and evil rulers.
