Identical twins Alex and Aaron know that when they turn thirteen, they might be separated forever. Like all other children in Quill, they face an irrevocable classification: They will be adjudged "Wanted" (to be sent off for military schooling), "Necessary" (dispatched to menial labor), or "Unwanted" and sent to a death farm. Alex's horror at being consigned to extinction lifts when he discovers that the Unwanteds' death camp is actually Artimé, a hidden underground city of magic. Somehow though, this loyal twin cannot tranquilly accept this reprieve. What happens next creates a confrontation pitting city against city and brother against brother. An imaginative new novel by the author of Cryer's Cross.
