From author Nina Varela comes the first book in an Own Voices, richly-imagined queer fantasy duology that’s Westworld meets Game of Thrones meets Marie Rutkoski’s The Winner’s Curse. Now in paperback!
Impossible love between two girls—one human, one Made. A love that could birth a revolution.
After the War of Kinds, the Automae, designed to be the playthings of royals, usurped the estates of their owners and bent the human race to their will. Now Ayla, a human servant rising in the ranks at the sovereign’s house, dreams of avenging the death of her family...by killing his daughter, Lady Crier.
Crier, who was Made to be beautiful, flawless...and to succeed her father. Crier had been preparing to do just that, but that was before she was betrothed to Scyre Kinok. Before she discovered her father isn’t as benevolent as she once thought. Before she met a passionate girl named Ayla.
