Amitiel is a hybrid creature on the cusp of adulthood and faced with a life-altering question: Be ye angyal or be ye daemon? She lives in one of two neutral realms that survived a civil war fifty years prior.
Walled off from that war-torn Barren, Amitiel’s West Realm home flourished in isolation. Within its insular cities, where all creatures once peacefully coexisted, Amitiel and her friends see neutrality slowly dying away, strangled by roots of bigotry.
With acceptance and gender equity balancing on a seesaw, mixed-bloods are encouraged to declare fealty to one race upon reaching their eighteenth year. As Amitiel’s birthday approaches, ghastly rumors upend her reality and send her franticly searching for the truth.
