Headmaster Trig runs the most successful underground school in former North America. He wants nothing more than a government that stops victimizing children, and their parents who can't afford the ridiculously expensive child tax. Alaric, Trig's right hand man, is the astute instructor with one weakness...Rumor. She was in the borough and someone caught her stealing. Alaric helped her escape, and for the first time ever, he brought an outsider into the school. Several months later, someone in the borough is looking for Rumor and is going to extremes to find her. Rumor's past comes crashing all around her, and it's about to expose the school if they don't turn her in.
Devyn Dawson delivers a fast paced epic tale of bravery and ambition. It's perfect for anyone who is ready for something different....something that makes you root for the criminal, gasp in disbelief, and memorable characters who keep you up all night reading.
