In the city of Alante, the descendants of the Greek gods live alongside mortals.Io is the youngest of three sisters, descended from the Fates. She is able to see threads: shimmering golden lines connecting every person. When a new relationship is formed, a new thread appears. When a person’s life-thread is cut, it’s their time to die. Io uses her gifts as a private investigator, trying to make ends meet in a world which treats other-born people like her with suspicion and prejudice.Then Io is witness to a murder – but this is no ordinary murder. Io can clearly see that the killer’s life-thread has already been severed. This woman should be long dead.More complicated still, there is another witness: Edei, a member of the Rossi mob, the gangsters who rule Alante. And what Io can see immediately, although Edei cannot, is that there is a bright golden fate-thread connecting them. This boy is her destiny…Filled with mystery, betrayal and powerful, simmering romance, and inspired by Greek mythology, Kika Hatzopoulou’s electrifying, genre-defying debut is perfect for fans of Alexandra Bracken’s Lore and Chloe Gong’s These Violent Delights.]]>
