A stunning fantasy adventure that is Westworld meets The Handmaid’s Tale. 
THE GOOD LUCK GIRLS:

Aster, the protector
Violet, the favorite
Tansy, the medic
Mallow, the fighter
Clementine, the catalyst

The country of Arketta calls them Good Luck Girls–they know their luck is anything but. Sold to a “welcome house” as children and branded with cursed markings. Trapped in a life they would never have chosen.

When Clementine accidentally murders a man, the girls risk a dangerous escape and harrowing journey to find freedom,      justice, and revenge in a country that wants them to have none of those things. Pursued by Arketta’s most vicious and powerful forces, human &  inhuman, their only hope lies in a bedtime story passed from one Good Luck Girl to another…..

A story that only the youngest or most desperate would  ever believe.

It’s going to take more than luck for them all to survive.
