Çeda is the youngest pit fighter in the history of Sharakhai. Her life changes when she crosses the path of Rümayesh, an ehrekh, a sadistic creature forged aeons ago by the god of chaos.
For centuries Rümayesh has lurked in the dark corners of Sharakhai, combing the populace for jewels that might interest her. Some she chooses to stand by her side, until she tires of them and discards them. Others she abducts to examine more closely, a thing that leaves them ruined, worn-out husks.
Çeda is horrified when Rümayesh becomes interested in her. When Çeda flees, Rümayesh turns her attention to Çeda’s friends instead. Çeda is horrified. She’s seen firsthand the suffering left in Rümayesh’s wake.
As she fights to protect the people dearest to her, Rümayesh comes closer to attaining her prize and the struggle becomes a battle for Çeda’s very soul.
