Kioto was born a memory trader, but her powers are useless without training, and she is now being denied her education.
She refuses to live a half-life, but by fulfilling her purpose, she’ll have to betray her sacred heritage. Can she survive, displaced and alone, in a world that seeks to destroy her kind?
It was tiring carrying other people’s memories. They got heavy, particularly the bad ones.
Kioto is a memory trader, hired to extract people’s unwanted memories. It’s a dangerous job, one that she was born into, and one that makes her an outcast.
When she stumbles upon a memory that casts doubt over everything she thought she knew, she’s forced to face the past she’s been running from. She doesn’t have long to discover the truth, and she soon learns that the unlikeliest of allies are the only people she can trust.
There’s tough choices to be made, and the price might just be their lives.

As Lobaya goes to war, Kioto must decide if family loyalties can cross enemy lines.
