Can an unlikely friendship really change the world?

On his thirteenth birthday, Elias Vaulkery just wants to hide in his tower—from the High-blood guests his father always invites, his shallow High-blood peers, and from his father most of all.

Because Elias’s father is the Killer of Kohar, the wartime leader who, fourteen years ago, obliterated one of his own cities, ending the last in a line of civil wars, along with thousands of Low-blood civilian lives.

The infamy of that act has followed his family ever since.

At least the upcoming school year allows Elias to escape home and move into the country’s most prestigious school—only to send him into the path of the Secret Keepers, a humanitarian religious order so often at odds with his father. Oh, and then there are those two Low-blood girls…

Hetty and Henley Giltmen never knew their father. He died at Kohar before they were born. Now, when outspoken Hetty literally collides with the Killer of Kohar’s son at the start of school party, a grudge match erupts that no amount of detention can fix. And yet, through unconventional assignments and near disastrous field trips, Hetty’s quiet sister might just become Elias’s first real friend.

But beyond the safe bubble of school, greater dangers are waking. A sinister force lurks behind the centuries of civil unrest—ancient, relentless, feeding the conflict between Low-bloods and High.

And when Hetty becomes its latest target, Elias may just be the only one who can help her.
