Description

In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya's luck runs out and she's caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning.

Professional reviews

"This dystopian story never lets up, and narrator Soneela Nankani hooks the listener from the start. The tension in Aya's voice is palpable after her family is slaughtered and she's hunted down, captured, and taken to the Garden to be groomed and sold at auction for her breeding potential. Nankani meets this gripping story head on. Aya's determination and constant struggle are evident in her defiant tone as Aya repeatedly makes herself unsuitable to appear at auction. Nankani's portrayals of the other girls run the gamut from terrified submission to haughty superiority. During a stint in solitary, Aya meets Kirin, a mute outcast, who helps her escape. The truly ghastly male characters from the capitol city are given voices that would give anyone nightmares. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
