When she becomes of age, she’s given a choice – now the Territory’s Left Hand, Isobel takes to the road, accompanied by the laconic rider, Gabriel, who will teach her about the Territory – its people and its laws, but she needs to learn quickly – the bones of the earth are cracking and the Hand has work to do.
