Description: "She's a powerful writer with an imagination that most of us would kill for. I have read everything she has written and am in awe of her many gifts." --Junot Diaz, New York Times bestselling author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

The rich and privileged have fled the city, barricaded it behind roadblocks, and left it to crumble. The inner city has had to rediscover old ways--farming, barter, herb lore. But now the monied need a harvest of bodies, and so they prey upon the helpless of the streets. With nowhere to turn, a young woman must open herself to ancient truths, eternal powers, and the tragic mystery surrounding her mother and grandmother. She must bargain with gods, and give birth to new legends.
