Of Sand and Storm
by Amber Argyle
By law, any child born in Idara is free, even if that child is born in a slave brothel. But the more beautiful Cinder becomes, the more she realizes that freedom is only a word. There are other words too - stronger words like betrayal, prison, death. And there are words even stronger still. Words like courage, family, love.
If Cinder is to escape her fate, she'll have to fight for her freedom.
