Danger lurks outside Eden’s sturdy walls, in the land of the Soulless—a medieval world filled with witches, warrior kingdoms, and magic.
WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award – Best Science Fiction (Dystopian)
Seventeen-year-old Aaliss graduated at the top of her class and now protects Eden as a highly trained Guardian. She’s sworn to keep Eden safe, for outside the city, a deadly plague reigns over the world. Once infected with the Red Death, no one lives past their early twenties.
Wilky, Aaliss’s rather odd younger brother, discovers a cure, but it comes at a cost. The High Priest falsely brands them as traitors, and Aaliss must do what she never expected—run.
Forced to flee the only home they’ve ever known, they plunge into the land of the Soulless. Captured in the wild new world, Aaliss strikes a deal with the surprisingly charming Prince Eamon—the cure, in exchange for her freedom. Together they search for the ingredients to the cure in a desperate race against time to save the Prince’s brother’s life.
Aaliss is eager to return home and seek revenge against the High Priest, but when her feelings for Prince Eamon tug her deeper into the world of the Soulless, she questions everything she once believed. Are the Soulless so bad? Will she and Wilky fall victim to the Red Death? Or… might Aaliss finally discover, against all odds, what her heart has yearned for all along?
