Fate chose those who were worthy and marked them at conception.
This mark sealed their destiny.
Kieran of Aipa is Death’s Guardian, marked from birth into servitude to a people who have shunned his very existence. He resents his position and all that it entails. A life without freedom, without choice, without love. Misunderstood and feared for his power, Kieran is an outsider among his own kind until he meets the one person who seems to look past Death’s mask into the man below.
Amaya of Delmar has lived at the Temple for as long as she can remember. It is her stronghold until Kieran arrives and changes everything. A victim of her empathic power, Amaya is drawn to Kieran, who violently possesses what they’ve all been denied: Emotion. What begins as an innocent friendship soon blossoms into something forbidden.
The future of their entire world rests on one choice and two lives led by the hands of fate down a path of imminent destruction.
