When Liliya is chosen to serve the elusive God of Time, she sees a chance to forget the war-torn horrors of her past. She finds her new life at the temple to be filled with mysteries, from a globe that displays the future to a handsome young palanquin bearer who makes her smile. But though life is easier amongst the gods, it is also fraught with danger. And soon the threads of time ensnare Liliya in a web she may not escape.
