In dystopian Estonia, DNA failure made two types of people - those who live and those who die. Kadri is one of those who die.
On the mined plain that used to be Eastern Europe, Kadri will not live to see thirty because of her DNA. Living in the ruins of Estonia, she uses her eidetic memory to study and re-create maps of the world that no longer exists. Like others with her DNA type, she is expected to live out her life quickly and die unknown, but then a mysterious corpse is found and when Kadri is blamed for the murder, she is thrust into chaos far beyond her control.
When Ôko, a tribe of blood shamans,offers her protection in exchange for her mapping skills, she finds out that the maps aren’t the only thing they’re after. And her acceptance of the cruel power they offer, or her refusal, will seal her fate.
