Sixteen-year-old Deka lives in fear and anticipation of the blood ceremony that will determine whether she will become a member of her village. She prays for red blood so she can finally belong.
But on the day of the ceremony, her blood runs gold.
A mysterious woman comes to her with a choice: stay in the village and submit to her fate, or leave to fight for the emperor in an army of girls just like her. They are called alaki: near-immortals with rare gifts. And they are the only ones who can stop the empire's greatest threat.
