The rich and the privileged have fled the city, barricaded it behind roadblocks, and left it to crumble.
The inner city has had to rediscover old ways -- farming, barter, herb lore.
But now the monied need a harvest of bodies, and so they prey upon the helpless of the streets.
With nowhere to turn, a young woman must open herself to ancient truths, eternal powers, the tragic mystery surrounding her mother and grandmother.
She must bargain with gods, and give birth to new legends.
