A retelling of the tale of Romeo and Juliet, set in a distant future.
Love or power? Which would you choose?
When status is the only factor standing in the way of true love, Neith tricks Invier into participating in a long-abandoned and dangerous competition called the Pursual. It's the only way for Invier to win her hand and improve his family's position in society.
As much as he hates the circumstances, he knows he must follow through or lose her to someone else. However, the mysterious deaths of competitors, the discovery of dark secrets, and a growing rebellion stand in his way. They also mean that winning her hand will not come easy.
Love and power are at stake but so are Neith and Invier’s lives. Will the competition meant to bring them together pull them apart?
