Kill or be killed. Love or let go. In a world divided between the Hunters and the Warriors, the prisoners who have fallen prey to King Cyrus' decrees are forced into the arena to fight until death. The winner is granted mercy and the privilege to see ather sunrise - for the loser, it's death unto the weak. Seventeen-year-old Princess Echo races toward freedom to find out who she really is and to put a world that has been swallowed by lies back together again. And then there's Ayden. His very existence as a Hunter is forbidden, and with his otherworldly violet eyes Echo is finding it hard to stay away from him. When death threatens their forbidden love, Echo and Ayden are forced to do the unthinkable. How far will they go to be together?
