Two worlds. Two different lives.
Divided by hate and violence.
Thrown together by chance.
Chamus's nightmare begins when he survives a massacre. Suicidal assassins from neighbouring Bartokhrin are terrorising his country, Altima. How do you fight someone who isn't afraid of death?
Across the border, Riadni is no ordinary Bartokhrian girl; she dresses like a boy, fights like a boy, spits and rides her horse like a boy. When the Hadram Cassal set up camp on her father's land, she is drawn to these rebels who are prepared to fight - and to die - for Their homeland.
A crash-landing in Bartokhrian territory forces Chamus and Riadni together. They find themselves on the run, hunted by killers, danger and death closing in on them from all sides...
