When a mysterious benefactor rescues her from prison and offers her a spot in the Shadow Trials, she jumps at the chance to receive a coveted place for her and her brother on the space station in the stars. Things get complicated when she’s paired with Riser, a dark soul harboring his own reasons for wanting the Emperor dead. With the asteroid days away, the Trials looming, and her brother’s fate hanging in the balance, she discovers the only thing more dangerous than the Emperor’s court is her conflicted heart.

What Readers Are Saying
Now before I begin, I just want to warn people that this book is dark. Much darker than you typically find in YA, which I think is amazing. The characters in this book were able to reach a depth of humanity you don’t typically see, which was so so so refreshing.” – Kay, Amazon user ★★★★★
This was an amazing read. The more I turned the pages, the more I fell into the rich, intricate world that was so vividly constructed by Audrey Grey. I found myself biting my nails a couple times because the suspense and the action get so thick and it’s all just so immersive… this one stands cleanly on its own and I can’t wait to read the next installment” – Jacob Shirley, Amazon user ★★★★★
This book was so captivating from the very beginning. The characters are deep and intriguing… I also loved the unique depiction of the social hierarchy. The author writes beautifully descriptive sentences that put you in the middle of the story… I will be anxiously waiting the second book.” – Dayna J. Sebourn, Amazon user ★★★★★
