Carnival of souls
by Melissa Marr

Carnival of Souls is the epicentre of The City which is inhabited by daimons and where the hated witches have been banned for years to live among the human world, mostly undetected.
The City’s rigid caste system determines one’s fate at birth but once every generation a competition is held, open to all castes, with a chance to challenge their standing and rise to a place with the elite.
Aya, born in to the ruling caste, rebels against The City’s social norms by being the first ruling-caste girl to enter the competition instead of marrying and breeding as she is expected to do. Kaleb, born into the lowest caste fights to escape.
Mallory has lived with the humans since early infancy and has been taught to hate daimons.
Mallory, Kaleb, and Aya’s lives are intertwined as each is called in to join the fight between daimons and witches.
