Delle Traveler would have been happy spending the next ten years of her life war-free, surfing the rolling waves off her school's quiet coast. Unfortunately, the world has other plans for her. When she steps between her old roommate and an attacking soldier, Delle finds herself accidentally entangled in a battle between Loyalists and Revisionists, those who want to reinstate the exiled regents and those who want to kill them.
Suddenly Delle is caught up in an epic journey to find the missing Heirs before they're killed, and along the way, she must convince a Mercenary she isn't a threat, avoid the Thief that wants to kill her, and try to figure out exactly why the leaders of the Consortium have decided to hunt the children who have been hidden away since the end of the civil war. It’s a dangerous time to be a Traveler. Delle will have to keep her wits about her to stay alive, protect those she loves, and guard the secrets she's sworn to keep.
