Twelve years ago, there was a war between gods and mortals...and the mortals won. The gods are gone--driven away--but they left something precious behind.
They left their children.
In the savagery of the war and its aftermath, the humans rounded up the half-caste bastard children of the gods, and put them to death.
But they missed a few.
Teenagers now, Sarai, Minya, Feral, Sparrow, and Ruby live in the gods' citadel--full of power and with nothing to do, but survive.
Until one day...their life in hiding is threatened.
From New York Times bestselling author Laini Taylor comes another heart-stopping fantasy.
