Amran is double-bad-luck: mixed race and transgender. But he’s also a poet, and his poems have gone where he couldn’t, and garnered fame he never expected. When Ralah University, the most prestigious institute of learning in the Qin Empire, offers to bring him out to do a reading of his poetry, Amran is faced with a choice: does he ignore the summons, or take them up on their offer? And if he does return to the Empire, this homeland that never wanted him in the first place, what is he really returning there to do?

I’m SO EXCITED for this novella! And Sam Cantu did a lovely job on the cover–that there is Ralah University, all stoic and regal in the desert and shit.
