It came out of the jungle. It decimated the village. Somehow, Jahal escaped. Now he's risking everything to rescue other survivors with the help of the enigmatic warder, Dalak. Survivors don't matter to Dalak. One instinct drives her: kill the demon, regardless of who dies along the way. Anaye has never seen a demon; the warder has kept her tribe safe for generations. But as the warder's tenuous link to society, Anaye goes where Dalak goes – and Dalak is going with Jahal. Saving anyone, not least themselves, will take all three of them working together, pushing human endurance and ingenuity to the limit. But what chance do they have when one of them isn't even human?
