Nyx had already been to hell. One prayer more or less wouldn't
make any difference...
On a ravaged, contaminated world, a centuries-old holy war rages,
fought by a bloody mix of mercenaries, magicians, and conscripted
soldiers. Though the origins of the war are shady and complex,
there's one thing everybody agrees on--
There's not a chance in hell of ending it.
Nyx is a former government assassin who makes a living cutting off
heads for cash. But when a dubious deal between her government and
an alien gene pirate goes bad, Nyx's ugly past makes her the top
pick for a covert recovery. The head they want her to bring home
could end the war--but at what price?
The world is about to find out.
