Bearing the mark of the Goddess of Death is no easy feat.

Khadji is Gwon’s new ruler. It is said he is cruel and merciless, and it’s now Malyi’s responsibility to bear him an heir. When she’s unsuccessful in her duty, Khadji marks her with the symbol of the Goddess of Death. Tossed aside, she must learn to fend for herself and use her new mark to her own advantage.
