Dak Hallman is the daughter of a late reknowned architect. She struggles with a serious alcohol addiction and the tragic events of the past half-decade of her life.
When the Council of Russ makes a rare unanimous vote on what should have been a controversial issue, Bryn suspects corruption. Soon enough, she, Kris, and Dak each act in ways placing them at odds with the powerful Russi state – an often lethal scenario.
