Do the stars control her destiny, or does she control the stars?
Noemi can’t trust her teachers, she can’t trust history, and she certainly can’t trust her family. She puts her faith in her friends and traveling companions—and her mother, who left her nothing but magical powers and a mysterious book. When the government takes her into protective custody, she hopes to gain the king’s support—but it all goes wrong, sending Noemi and her friends on the run again, trying to keep ahead of their enemies until the day when everything must change. One choice will be her liberation… or her destruction.
