Morgan Stockhour knows getting too close to the edge of Internment, the
floating city and her home, can lead to madness. Even though her older brother,
Lex, was a Jumper, Morgan vows never to end up like him. There’s too much for
her on Internment: her parents, best friend Pen, and her betrothed, Basil. Her
life is ordinary and safe, even if she sometimes does wonder about the ground
and why it’s forbidden.
Then a murder, the first in a generation, rocks the city. With whispers
swirling and fear on the wind, Morgan can no longer stop herself from
investigating, especially once she meets Judas. Betrothed to the victim, Judas
is being blamed for the murder, but Morgan is convinced of his innocence.
Secrets lay at the heart of Internment, but nothing can prepare Morgan for what
she will find—or whom she will lose.

that was their home, Pen and Morgan make a horrible discovery—Internment is
And it’s all Morgan’s fault.
