Cen exhaled slowly. “It doesn’t matter what their rules are or what the punishment will be. We are healers, and we must continue working and doing what we can to help our people regardless of the potential punishment.” He paused. “And that includes this boy.”
Emi was born an outcast but raised to be a healer. So when a young boy stumbles into her village with a rare disease, she knows that it’s up to her to find the cure in the one place that abhors her people—the capital. But when Emi arrives, she’s unwittingly thrust into a competition to win the Crown Prince’s heart.
Staying in the game will give her time to search for the cure, but is it worth risking her life?
