- Part 5 of Young Toughs
"Having a servant-boy accompany them on this trip was annoying, Kit thought. But there was no way around it; Honey's parents would never have allowed Honey to visit Yclau without her young bodyguard."
Kit has reached her apprenticeship birthday and is on a path to inherit power. But what sort of power will she wield?
A journey from the First Landstead to the neighboring Queendom of Yclau seems an easy enough day-trip for two young women and a faithful young servant. Kit and Honey will simply catch a monorail to the queendom's capital and enjoy their first sight of a foreign nation.
But Yclau is not the First Landstead. It is a land of robots, memories of the Bomb, and a lingering fear of what might occur next.
Kit is determined to have her birthday the way she wanted. But she will need allies for her fight, and one of them is an ally she did not expect.
