A Curse of Tooth and Claw reimagines the Mexican folktale The Bear Prince. Quirera (Kiki) Xochicale is a Slayer in the Demoncorps of Ozero. She patrols the border along the perilous Cicatrix, a mass of darkness that separates the kingdom. It’s her job to ensure the demons that crawl out don’t make it past her.
When Kiki’s best friend, Yarixa, goes missing, everyone assumes she’s either deserted or been eaten by a demon. After all, Slayers go missing all the time. But Kiki refuses to believe it. Instead, she follows a trail of clues that lead her into the heart of the Cicatrix. What she finds is beyond anything she could ever have imagined.
The Cicatrix is home to the demons that roam the shadows, but it’s also home to all the people who were swallowed up by it fifteen years ago, including the lost monarchs of Ozero who’ve been cursed to walk the day as demon bears and spend their nights as humans. With the help of her fellow Slayers and a group of cursed boys, Kiki sets off on a mission to save her friend from an ancient prophecy that could free Ozero from its curse. Kiki will do whatever it takes to save her friend, even if that means offering herself to the prophecy.
