On an island cursed by eternal winter, Sylvi agrees to run a late-season haul for a smuggler, but when they reach their destination, Sylvi must decide if she can abandon her cherished solitude and anonymity--and the favor of the icy spirit Winter--to join with the rebels.
Orphaned Sylvi has chipped out a niche for herself on Layce, an island cursed by eternal winter. Alone in her truck, she takes comfort in two things: the solitude of the roads and the favor of Winter, an icy spirit who has protected her since she was a child. When her best friend, Lenore, runs off with the rebels, Sylvi must make a haul too late in the season for a smuggler she wouldn't normally work with, the infamous Mars Dresden. Alongside his team, Sylvi will do whatever it takes to save her friend. When the time comes, she'll have to choose: safety, anonymity, and the favor of Winter-- or the future of the island that she calls home. -- adapted from jacket
