In a city protected by martial law and enclosed by a forcefield, six young people struggle with sudden upheaval both from without and within.
The Land of Camelot, resurrected on the tomb of London, is protected by a force-field called the Endless Knot and by the Rooks—soldiers; feared, admired, and often hated by the citizenry.
For centuries following a catastrophic war the Rooks have safeguarded Camelot, but their brutality has pushed some citizens too far. Seemingly without warning, a team of rebels infiltrates and takes over a section of Parliament, the stronghold of the Rooks, determined to be the first people to leave Camelot in over seven hundred years.
Tryamour and Unghared become their hostages—two very different girls both trying to keep themselves and their companions alive. Yvain by contrast fights with the rebels, but begins to question the worth of their actions. Dorigen and Degaré, a physics student and a Rook cadet, face the same questions but from the opposite side, while Palamon is determined to somehow find his true love within this chaos.
But with the rebels aided by fanatic outsiders and the Knights who control Camelot with their own agendas, it begs the question of whether the people should fight to free themselves from oppression...
Or if they're better off with the devils they know.
