In a hellish city, the fate of a young boy rests on the very thing he fears most...
Robbed of his childhood by tragedy and betrayal and forced onto the streets, only fury makes young Ninian feel whole - and in a world of gangs and fae, Ninian is more than willing to fight for his life.
But it doesn't take much to topple a life which is already balanced on the edge of a knife. And by the time a desperate Ninian realizes he's crossed the wrong person, it is much, much too late.
In his frantic struggle to right his collapsing world, Ninian's furious, bloody efforts are dredging up history he'd rather forget - the past is tired of being held at bay - and even fighting cannot protect Ninian from himself.
So when he meets a crimson-eyed stranger, a boy so broken he refuses even to speak, Ninian does not believe he has the capacity to care.
He is wrong.
And that will change everything...

Micaela Alcaino, cover designer: Aussie living in London since 2013, I work on crime/thrillers, fantasy, historical, literary, nature, womens fiction, YA & more
I'm a graphic designer and illustrator which covers across fiction, non fiction and children's. I was lucky enough to fall into publishing as a designer and have never looked back. I use Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop, as well as the classic pen to paper (for drawing and illustrating). I love reading, which also helps when working in this industry! My other passion is travel photography (and just photography in general), so when Im not spending my time designing I'm travelling and taking photos.
