A cosmic adventure about the boundless power of a young woman's potential.

When Madarena first meets the old rogue Apophax, she assumes she's dreaming. After all, he wears a coat made of hedgehog quills, changes size at will, and treats the laws of physics as merely suggested guidelines. Very quickly, she learns she's stepped into a world where dreams and reality intersect. Dangerously.

Now, she's an accomplice in the wily thief's master plan to rescue a Muse from one of the most powerful beings in existence. The unlikely duo schemes their way from a town made of moonbeams to the fog-shrouded land of the dead. They fence with nightmares and bargain with witches amid the asteroid remains of a shattered planet. Along the way, Madarena learns that potential is more than a word. Rescuing the Muse-and Madarena's own survival-depend on harnessing all the women she can be.

Fans of Heidi Heilig's The Girl from Everywhere and Matt Haig's The Midnight Library will enjoy this dazzling, imaginative adventure from the author of The Chaos Court.
