“This dark, dystopian fantasy is the stunning beginning to what promises to be an exciting trilogy. In a world where women die at age 20 and men at age 25, 16-year-old Rhine is among thousands of girls who are kidnapped and sold to wealthy young husbands. Rhine finds herself one of three mistresses on a huge, decadent estate, but her only wish is to escape back to the poverty in which she lived with her twin brother. I'm already pumped for the next book!”
— Daryl Ellerbe, Greenlight Bookstore, Brooklyn, NY

Description


At age 16, Rhine Ellery has four years to live. Thanks to a botched effort to create a perfect race, all females live to age 20 and males live to age 21. On the cusp of her 17th birthday, Rhine attempts to flee, but what she finds is a society spiraling out of control.
