Obedience is the only currency that matters, as Emma’s every move is dictated by the cult’s charismatic and manipulative Leader. Caught between her desire for freedom and the fear of disobedience, Emma navigates a treacherous path filled with secrecy, indoctrination, and psychological manipulation.

When Emma meets a charming stranger with a flair for rebellion, she begins to question her life in the Guild. She starts to fight against Leader’s expectations, and the dangerous life he’s grooming her for. As Emma’s secrets grow, Leader’s secrets begin to weigh on her more heavily than ever before. She begins to wonder if the Guild is where she truly belongs.
