About the Book:

It's thousands of years after the collapse of civilization and Tala is the best hunter in her clan. But nothing prepares her for when her entire clan is ruthlessly hunted down by another. They are then starved and tortured unless they submit to becoming slaves, but Tala refuses. She recognizes that this clan is carving the same destructive path that their ancestors did so long ago, and can't sit by while they force people into bondage, and kill those who don't give in. So she endures their torture, trying to find a way to stop them. Close to death, Tala learns frightening truths about her own origins, which stop the enemies from killing her.The reason she has no navel is because she was not born, but scientifically engineered. In an escape attempt gone awry, the man who created her saves her life, and then offers to help overcome her captors. Now, despite his central role in the recent devastation, Tala must rely on him in order to liberate the other captives and stay alive.
