A novel by

The trap closes. The hunt nears its end.

Sixteen-year-old Aleka travels the western desert with Survival Colony 9, a small group of refugees seeking shelter from the Skaldi that have overrun the land. The daughter of Diana the Huntress and a part-Skaldi father, Aleka was left as a baby with the woman she knows as Auntie, who swore to protect her from those who would exploit her unique ancestry. Unaware of what she is, Aleka spends her days searching the tunnels beneath the desert and dreaming of freedom from Auntie's domineering rule.

Then Aleka meets a desert nomad calling himself Aesir, who proposes that she join his band of teen runaways in a daring plan to defeat the Skaldi for good. What Aleka doesn't know is that the Skaldi high command inhabiting the city by the great salt lake have a plan of their own, one they cannot put into effect without reclaiming the girl who shares their genetic history. Their final assault will come soon, and Aleka will need to discover her own powers with the aid of an unlooked-for ally if her colony is to survive.
