The Dead Seas
by Trevor A. A. Evans
Chesrie and Kelcie lost their mother when they were young and had to find their own way to survive, becoming thieves, but years of such dishonest living have worn on their consciences, particularly Kelcie's, so they've been saving up to start over in the mountains. All they have left is some work among the islands of the Dead Seas, though one isolated island might prove the end of their journey.
