The eighth in the Shadows of the Apt seriesAll is in turmoil as the world moves toward war. In Solarno, the spies watch each other and ready their knives, while Myna sees the troops muster at its border and emotions run high as it vows never to be enslaved again. In Collegium, the students argue politics, too late to turn the tide. In the heart of the Empire, new pilots have completed their secretive training, generals are being recalled to service, and armies are ready to march. Their Empress, the heir to two worlds, intends to claim her birthright—and nothing will stand in her way. A conflict is coming, the like of which the insect-kinden have never seen.
