Book Details

A great new stand-alone science fiction novel from Carrie Vaughn, author of the Kitty Norville series.

Polly Newton has one single-minded dream, to be a starship pilot and travel the galaxy. Her mother, the Director of the Mars Colony, derails Polly's plans when she sends Polly and her genius twin brother, Charles, to Galileo Academy on Earth.

Strange, unexplained, dangerous coincidences centered on their high-profile classmates begin piling up. There's more going on than would appear, and the stakes are high. Polly is determined to find the truth, no matter the cost.

It is both.”—Novel Gazing Redux

“Exciting, entertaining.”—The Irresponsible Reader

A refreshing mix of teen drama and science.”—Elitist Book Reviews

“Evokes the same wide-eyed enthusiasm and sense of limitless possibilities contained in many Golden Age stories and novels, but with a modern eye toward inclusivity and a realistic vision of future technologie.”—Fantasy Literature (4-1/2 out of 5 stars)
