The sounds could only mean one thing... They were coming for me...
Victor's memory has been damaged from months of torture and enslavement. There's one thing they can't steal from him...the hope of finding his lost family. Carina is haunted by strange visions and the symbols etched into her skin. She will stop at nothing to discover her true identity.
In this tale of survival and vengeance, two young humans fight back against the oppression of an alien race called the Kuljik. Dangers and unspeakable horrors lie around every corner of the Sity, a violent metropolis where enslaved humans are abused for the pleasure of the aliens. Victor and Carina are both blessed with mysterious supernatural powers and represent humanity's best hope to escape. Will their personal demons cause them to unravel as they forge the destiny of their futures? This is the first book in a planned four book series.If you don't get chills reading it, I don't want to know what will.
The Sity is a gripping read that kept me up all night.
The world that Geist has created felt so real and the characters so unforgettable that you have no choice but to become obsessed with the Sity and its inhabitants.
