Dayanara Kenna can survive a night with some of the worst man-eating plants conjured to life by man. She knows what do when a sea dragon rises from the crystalline ocean waters near her isolated village.
But when she discovers a young man setting himself on fire outside her village boundaries, she realizes there is a lot she still doesn't know about the volcano-ravaged world around her.
Her search for answers takes her on a wild adventure where she encounters new friends and a culture riddled with anomalies: emotion-obliterating Rebirths, tears that give life, and a self-healing population with inexplicable scars.
But perhaps the most surprising thing that Dayanara finds . . . is Dorian.
The two natural-born enemies are drawn to each other, with a connection so powerful that Dayanara believes nothing could ever sever it—until she learns the magnitude of what a certain ritual means for a being like Dorian.
She soon finds herself caught in the middle of love, war, and a duty to her people. When all three collide, she emerges—indelibly scarred—and she is set on a course that will change her life forever.
"Powerful," and "screen-worthy" with "imagery and dialogue working together to visualize a screen canvas where one can self-immolate into both light and dark forces of the 'self', emerging reborn."
