On the eve of her 16th birthday, Candle Enys discovers her brother has sold her soul to a demon.
Scared for her life, Candle runs away. But the mountains of Hanternos are dangerous, especially for soft-hearted girls who have never learned to fight. At dawn and at dusk spirits crawl from the shadows, searching for bodies to steal. Evil stirs in the deep caves, and the wind smells of black powder.
A chance meeting with an ancient being sets her on the path to power she never knew she possessed. It also places a target on her back.
If she is to survive, Candle must defeat her monsters, or risk becoming one herself.
A dark fantasy with steampunk and horror elements.
