"10 years. 3 gangs. 1 girl's epic quest...Valerie Simons knows the Wars are dangerous -- her little brother was killed by the Boars two years ago. But nothing will sway Valerie from joining the elite and beautiful Herons to avenge his death - a death she feels she is responsible for. When Valerie is instead recruited by the mysterious Stags, their charismatic leader, Jax, promises to help her get revenge. Torn between old love and new loyalty, Valerie fights to stay alive as she races across the streets of San Francisco to finish the mission that got her into the gangs. The Illiad as you've never seen it before, A Thousand FIrs is and extraordinary debut that will leave you speechless." -- Inside cover.
