In The City, you fight to the death to prove your worth.

In the Human world, you can hide away the daughter of the Daimon Ruler with a Witch for seventeen years, her mother can vanish and step father living on the run.

In the City, Daimons fight against other daimons in the hope to one day become a member of the ruling caste. They visit the Carnival of souls were there is murder for hire and pleasures to be bought.

Witches and Daimons for years have been mortal enemies, after the last great war the Witches were exiled to the human world and the Daimons kept the city.

Aya is the only woman of the ruling caste to ever reject marriage in favour of fighting to death.
Kaleb the lower class cur who's ruthlessness makes him a wanted assassin and pleasure companion, hired to find Marchiosas missing daughter.
Mallory is the girl who has been taught by her father Alex to hate, kill and fear Daimons.

But no one is ever as they seem.

Marr has woven together a darkly haunting world of brutality, secrecy and magic that is dangerous and a curse. A world hate runs deep, blood vows bind hearts and minds and forces her characters to face their demons and, unlikely band together.

A thrilling fantasy setting dystopian world, Marr has created the perfect blend of genres with vividly imagined characters and settings.
So put on your mask and come see what the world has to offer.

And what you're willing to sell. Enjoy.
