Synopsis: On the floating city of
Internment,you can be anything you dream - a novelist or a singer, a
florist or a factory worker... Your life is yours to embrace or to
squander. There's only one rule: you don't approach THE EDGE. If you do,
it's already over.
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
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.
