Summary
Two refugees of war, Mahlia and Mouse, are known as 'war maggots': survivors who have barely managed to escape the unspeakable violence plaguing the war-torn lands of the Drowned Cities. Their fragile safety is threatened when they discover a wounded, bioengineered war beast named Tool, who is hunted by a vengeful band of soldiers. Mahlia is faced with an impossible decision: risk everything to save the boy who once saved her, or flee to her own safety
