June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic, and now they’re on the brink of a new existence—a country at peace, with hope of reunification with the Colonies. Both Day and June are back in the good graces of the Republic. June is working within the government’s highest circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies. War threatens the Republic’s border cities once again. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever and, as June soon discovers, the Republic’s only means of defense could cost Day everything he has.
