THE SHADOW RUNNERS by LIZ MAVERICK
Newgate, Australia: In the 22nd century, history repeats
itself. Part penal colony, part dumping ground for toxic
waste, the land is controlled by "the Parliament," a gang
of dissipated self-styled aristocrats. To survive here,
you have to know the tricks. Like Jenny Red. She's been
Down and made it out to tell the tale.
But D'ekkar Han Valoren.the bastard son of the Emperor
that Jenny's family was accused of destroying.knows Jenny
escaped, and he wants her to take him back in. Okay, maybe
she'll help Deck's team of rebels, his Shadow Runners,
like he asks. But not because he's holding anything over
her. No, she'll do it because of what was once between
them. Because of the revolution of her heart.
