The price of acceptance among a cruel race is far higher than she ever imagined.
It will cost her everything she ever thought she was, then prove to be nothing like she’d hoped.
Exiled from her warrior people and declared genetically sub-optimal, Avaria dreams of one day proving herself in combat and re-joining her alien kin. Until then she lives as an outcast, carving out a life for herself in a perilous world.
When their leader Zileca approaches her with an offer for salvation, Avaria thinks she’s finally found her chance. But she soon learns that acceptance comes at a high price. Forced to face the other outcasts in a brutal fight to prove her worth, Avaria must use all of her training if she wants to stay alive. The winner will be welcomed into her people as an equal. The losers will be left to die.
As Avaria climbs the ranks, she begins to realize that even if she wins, Zileca’s offer is far more sinister than she ever could have imagined…
