Since childhood, Sarah has wanted to participate in the Hunt, a monthly ritual in which her people sneak into a nearby city for food. In Sarah’s world, this food is human flesh. When Sarah’s first hunt ends in catastrophe, she is forced to prepare captives for slaughter. But recent events have Sarah questioning whether she’s capable of murder. Worse, she finds herself sympathizing with Troy, a captive she knows she must kill. With members of her village turning up dead—and suspicions of mutiny rising—Sarah and her family must be more careful than ever. Yet there’s something not quite right about her family … something that might cost Sarah her life.
