America as we know it has completely transformed. The US is ruled by a ruthless dictatorship. A genetic experiment gone wrong has made 90 percent of the newborn population male, making women a treasure that is fought over. In order to obtain that treasure and get married, a dangerous series of mind games and combat tests known as the Tournament must be won first.
Allazar, a quiet twenty-year-old man living in the ruins of what used to be New York City, finds himself doing what he promised he would never do: fall in love. Upon meeting the angelic seventeen-year-old Ceirra, he finds himself instantly smitten with her, as she is with him. Allazar knows that no matter what, he must win a Tournament to marry her. There’s just one problem: as an omega (the lowest and discriminated social class in America), it is illegal for him to compete. And to make matters worse, Ceirra is in actuality the king’s daughter. Allazar knows the consequences of illegally joining a Tournament just as he knows that most of the competitors that don’t come out with a bride don’t come out at all.
In this romantic dystopian thriller, Allazar must fight not only to survive in a game that is already against him but for the rights of all those who were wronged by a corrupted, greedy, and bloodthirsty government.
