About The Golden Needle
INDIANA JONES MEETS THE HUNGER GAMES:
Her friends are dead.
Her execution is imminent.
Now someone wants to help her escape.
Alone and hours away from the executioner’s blade, eighteen-year-old Dashi doesn’t hesitate when a stranger offers her a way out of prison. But her freedom comes with a price—she must enter the khan’s race.
Now, Dashi and three dozen desperate competitors will journey across the desolate taiga, where predators stalk the trees and danger inhabits every shadow. Dashi must be the first to find the ruins devastated long ago by magic, bypass the deadly traps rigged to ensnare or skewer the unwary, and retrieve the artifact the khan desires.
With the dangers of the race mounting, Dashi finds herself forced to make an unlikely pact with a fellow contestant. Yet even as the bond between them grows, Dashi suspects her newfound ally is holding back a secret about the artifact they’ve been charged with recovering.
In a race where there can only be one winner, Dashi must prepare for treachery at every turn, even if it means casting aside her honor and becoming the least trustworthy one of all.
