Khristoph Marie ventures back to the realm of her birth, androgynous and unrecognizable. In search of her long time roommate, Josh, she will spare nothing in her quest to bring him home safely. What secrets lurk behind his disappearance, and who will stop her from going too far to find them out? In order to survive in a universe where females of her kind are a rarity, Khris must pose as a man in her return, but is it aid or trouble she'll find in an unlikely ally, the Raksha Prince of Listelp. When boundaries are broken, promises are bound, and love invades duties, Khris finds her world spinning out of control; much like the chromatic ability she wields.

Why Damien . . . Why?
Only one object of understanding remains with the full force of terrifying clarity: my fate is now hopelessly bound to Damien Decay Raksha.
