Where do you run when a world is out to get you?AIs, Forged beings, superheroes, angels, and worlds that change in the blink of an eye–here is a richly imagined tale of ordinary redemption in an extraordinary world from one of the most provocative writers working today.…Francine is a young runaway looking to find a definition of love she can trust. In Sankhara, she finds a palace where rooms are made of bone, flowers, and the hearts of heroes. She finds a scientist mapping the territory of the human mind. She finds a boyfriend. And she finds Eros itself–incarnated in the androgynously irresistible form of Jalaeka. But not everyone is in love with the god of love.

It will take something both more and less powerful than the human heart to save the worlds upon worlds at risk when gods collide. “For Robson, world-building is a literary device like any other, useful for exposing buried fears and desires to the light of day, no matter how strange the sun.” –New York Times Book Review
