Kalish had a plan. The gods had a different one.
Kalish expects to become her clan’s next fatecarver, channelling the wisdom of the gods into the storyscars of young women—tattooing their futures onto their skin.
But the gods have different plans for her.
Kalish’s own storyscar brands her a traitor.
Banished by her clan, she sets out to find a new home, hoping to rewrite her own fate. But her storyscar is more complex than even the elders guessed, and her travels take her far beyond the understanding of her clan.
When she discovers a plot to destroy her people, she must decide: leave them to die, or save them by becoming the traitor they think she is.
