Description: Liyana has trained her entire life to be the vessel of a goddess. On the chosen day, she dances to summon her tribe’s deity, who will inhabit Liyana’s body and use magic to bring the rain. But her goddess never comes. Believing it to be Liyana’s fault, her furious tribe abandons her in the desert where she expects to die, until a boy walks out of the dust in search of her. Korbyn is a god inside his vessel, and a trickster god at that. He tells Liyana that five other gods are missing, and they set off on a dangerous journey in search of the other forsaken vessels. Not everyone is willing to the believe the trickster god’s tale, but the closer Liyana grows to Korbyn, the less she wants to disappear to make way for her goddess. But she has no choice: she must die so that her tribe can live … unless a trickster god can help her to trick fate—or a human girl can muster some magic of her own.
