Pakistan, 2083 A.D. The world is snow and blood.
For Avaan, a gun in his hand feels as natural as breathing. As a Pakistani living under martial law and religious bigotry, violence is never too far away. Three years ago, a military raid snatched whatever respite he had—his brother, his family, and Doua, the love of his life.
Now a heartbroken wreck of a man, Avaan finds himself embroiled in a city-wide conspiracy that poisons everything he’s ever touched. The army shadows his every move, the mob boss he works for seemingly wants him dead, and a legendary resistance leader has taken a special interest in him. As everything comes to a bloody head, Avaan discovers the one thing that can keep him going: Doua is alive. Obsessed with finding her, he takes a stand against the army, the mob and even Pakistan itself with the only thing in the world he could ever count on: the gun in his hand.
