A sun-blocking shroud hangs above the planet, trapping the remnants of civilization in a perpetual ice age. Cerebus Command, the rulers of Rhone, the fortress ark preserving Earth’s biomes, has controlled mankind with an iron fist since Icefall. But a group of rebels is on the verge of fulfilling a 200-year-old plan to crash an asteroid into Earth, breaking the shroud and bringing back Clearsky. Cerebus must do everything in its power to annihilate the threat—and those behind it—before they lose their power and humanity is destroyed… forever.
Odessa, a nineteen-year-old MEDcadet, witnesses the murder of her anatomy professor and finds herself in fear for her life. Fighting recurring panic attacks while sailing from her home on Rhone across the Eastern Sea to Earthland, she manages to keep what she’s seen to herself. To her horror, however, when the Huo Long docks, she and her podmates are arrested by the very security force who committed the crime.
Reynal Królik, an eighteen-year-old trading post sled driver on Earthland, longs for Clearsky though he’s never known anything but the shroud that darkens the atmosphere. After he and his fellow messengers foil an assassin’s attempt to kill Odessa and her companions, he whisks them away, only to discover he and she are on opposite sides of the secret mission to slam the asteroid into Earth—one for which Rey will be the asteroid driver.
Rey and Odessa—along with their friends and the dangerous outlaw who rescued an infant Rey from his mother’s murderers—race against time to escape Earthland, but can they evade Cerebus’ flagship war zeppelin in order for Rey to complete the task for which he was destined? A destiny Odessa was taught to deny and will fight to prevent?
