“Gaunt Rainbow lives in a bleak dystopia twenty years after the destruction of the walled city Khetam. In this lifetime, a solitary young woman called “Rainbow” is cursed and drains life from the living. She does so without will so that she remains perfectly healthy. And she is conscious of the wounds she inflicts upon others.

The uncontrollable fact fills her with remorse. After years of knowingly tormenting people, Pamela follows rumors. She goes into the Shur desert. There, she desperately hopes she will find an errant messiah. He will remove her murderous curse.

The hunt ends the day she leaves her home. A sniper kills her. Eight years pass then Pamela is resurrected alone in the desert. Her money and supplies are missing, despite the dead bodies and abandoned vehicles surrounding her when she wakes.

She goes to the nearest city, Gomorrah, and discovers old friends, Tee and Ruth. They tell her about a new city, one called New Babel. Heathens are building the city from the spoils of the war against the Chosen. The city lays deep in the southernmost part of desert. Rumors say this is where the messiah had disappeared. Rainbow hopes she see the messiah all grown up. They were both children when he healed her blindness.
