A literary and compelling story about war, revenge and first love from a talented fantasy writer
Seventeen-year-old Frost has left her homeland to travel to the neighbouring country of Ruan in the hope of finding the Goddess in the Fire, a deity she believes will rid her of the curse that has plagued her all her life. If anyone causes Frost to bleed, a wolf demon, a god of the Other, takes over her body. While in this berserker rage the true Frost is trapped within her own body and forced to watch as the Wolf kills everyone in its path.
On her quest to find the goddess, Frost meets two of members of the Ruan military force sworn to protect the country's borders from neighbouring rebel fighters: the tortured Arian and the charismatic Luca. Frost confides in Luca about the Wolf and Luca promises to help her to control her rage. Over the coming weeks, under Luca's guidance she begins to overcome the Wolf within. She also begins to fall in love with Luca - while Arian begins to fall for her.
