For some ponies, winning is everything. Always coming out on top, no matter what the losers say about you. And when you're the sixth-richest CEO in Canterlot and one of the youngest, despite only arriving in Canterlot a few years ago with a sack of bits, good eyes and a greater vision, you can't afford to care.

For the past six months, when not seeing just how far he can push his luck when it comes to deal-making and deal-breaking, the well-connected, unforgiving and brilliant Unicorn known as Silver Star has been running a rather profitable side business: Donning a disguise and conning the richest and stupidest members of the Canterlot Elite out of everything they own. Not because they wronged him in some way, but because it's fun, and because he prefers good targets to Good targets. Sometimes, the law firm he bought will pass cases to him. Other times, he seeks out his own prey. The risk, the rush, the thrill of a good plan executed perfectly, or better yet, salvaged despite unforseen complications... It's brilliant.

But when even gold loses its lustre, Silver - formerly Star Apple - must make new friends, reconnect with his family, and rediscover what it means to have fun. But what does it mean when feelings start to appear in a heart he had believed to be beyond even the warmest touch? And when something is traded away... is it possible to get it back?

In the heart of Ponyville, oblivious to the machinations of Canterlot in his absence, as a blooming disaster of his own making threatens to tear Equestria asunder, Silver Star Apple is going to find out.
