Runaway teen Layla struggles to survive on the mean streets of 1980s New York City, far from home. But now every supernatural creature from the darkest corners of the urban grime is after Layla... and the fetus with great power she never wanted growing inside her. Being a Siren also comes with its share of power, and Layla wouldn't dare let that go to waste. A mysterious villain known as the Rat King will use any means necessary to find out more about the boundless power Layla carries against her will, but will her power be enough to escape from his clutches, and save her friends, the city, and... even herself? Writer Joanne Starer (The Gimmick, Fire & Ice: Welcome To Smallville) and artist Khary Randolph (Excellence) shine a light on bodily autonomy in a patriarchal world in this gritty urban fantasy.
