Azra has just turned 16, and overnight her body lengthens, her olive skin deepens, and her eyes glisten gold, thanks to the brand new silver bangle that locks around her wrist.

Humans become pawns. And rumors of an uprising become real as the Afrit's reach extends beyond the underground world of Janna. Straddling the line between these worlds becomes impossible.
