About this audiobook

Before she was betrayed and left for dead, Tenny was many things: prodigal daughter of the Driftwood City underworld. Leader of the Thorn Orphans, the gang fighting for a better tomorrow. City shaman, able to bend her home's boroughs to her will. Partner-in-crime to Cole, the runaway rich boy with powers just like hers.

But that was all before.

Four years later, Tenny is an exile, sleepwalking through life and waiting to die. But a chance encounter puts her on a bloody path back to the life she left behind. Friendless and powerless, she returns to Driftwood City, only to find a world where the Thorn Orphans have finally won. A better tomorrow, today.

And all that progress tethered to the heartbeat of the friend who ordered her death.

Her city. Or her vengeance. It's an impossible choice.

But if Tenny wants to survive, she'll have to choose.

A meditation on friendship, greed, and the uneasy intersection between justice and vengeance, this standalone fantasy puts a magical spin on pulpy revenge sagas like JOHN WICK and KILL BILL.
