Honor or freedom. Mira can only choose one.
Narrowly escaping death at the hands of the Magistrate, and with the Iron Gate army close behind, Mira travels west, toward the coast with three human fugitives, searching for the mythical land of Sanctuary.
After encountering a pack of wolf shifters, headed by the charismatic-and brazen-Stryker, Mira learns that Sanctuary is real after all.
Caldera Grove: home of the Otherkin. Hidden in the mouth of a dormant volcano, it has protected its residents from humans since the early days following the great cataclysm. For Mira— a vampire-Caldera is a land of peace; an escape from the relentless persecution of the humans who once enslaved her, and an end to the daily struggle and bloodshed of being a gladiator. For the humans accompanying her, Caldera Grove means death. Trespassers are destroyed before they can penetrate its borders.
Follow Stryker toward freedom and peace, or honor the humans who risked everything to aid her escape, and stand and fight against the army of humans closing in on them?
A choice must be made, and Mira alone will have to shoulder the consequences.
