War steals that which we want most to keep safe. And for those who live on the isles of the Everblue, the fear of war has rooted itself deep within their hearts and stalked the edges of their dreams.

For Evan Montresser, that fear hasn't taken hold in his heart. Instead, it has always been his dream to become a Leaf of the Alliance and pilot an airship to guard people from that fear. Claire, Evan's older sister and already a pilot, wants to keep him as far from the military and brewing war as possible. But when a mysterious girl with crystals embedded into her wrists falls onto Evan's airship, Evan and Claire find themselves thrown into a chain of  events that will bring them to the center of the Everblue sky, and the reason their fragmented world is tearing itself further apart. What role does this girl play in the destruction of Evan and Claire's world, and why is the Empire willing to start a war just to kill her?

They're about to find out.
