Kaleb is of the lowest caste; Aya is ruling caste – but female. They both face bleak futures and, for each of them, fighting to the death is the only way to try and live.
Mallory lives in the human world and knows little of The City, beyond the treat it poses her and her family. But soon she, too, will be drawn into the decadence and danger that is the Carnival of Souls…
A tale of secrets, love and the struggle to forge one’s own destiny. The new novel from the author of the Wicked Lovely series.
