From New York Times best-selling author and National Book Award finalist Traci Chee comes a Japanese-inspired fantasy brimming with demons, romance, and plans gone awry. When a girl who’s never longed for adventure is hit with a curse that begins to transform her into a demon, she embarks on a quest to reverse the curse and return to her normal life, but along the way is forced to confront her true power within.


In the realm of Awara, where gods, monsters, and men exist side by side, Miuko is simply an ordinary girl. But when Miuko is cursed and begins to turn into a blue demon whose touch is deadly, she must set off on an expedition in the hope of reversing the transformation. Aided by a thieving magpie and continuously thwarted by a demon prince, Miuko’s journey through the mortal and the spiritual world is littered with burning temples, spirits, and towns being swallowed by the earth. But power is seductive for a girl who was once average, and she’ll have to decide if saving her soul from shadows is worth blending into them once again.
