Synopsis

The first novel in a mesmerizing fantasy series set in the Victorian era featuring Micah Grey, a protagonist who’s intersex, genderqueer, and bisexual.

In a land of lost wonders, the past is stirring once more... Gene's life resembles a debutante's dream. Yet she hides a secret that would see her shunned by the nobility. Gene is both male and female. Then she displays unwanted magical abilities - last seen in mysterious beings from an almost-forgotten age. Matters escalate further when her parents plan a devastating betrayal, so she flees home, dressed as a boy.

The city beyond contains glowing glass relics from a lost civilization. They call to her, but she wants freedom not mysteries. So, reinvented as ''Micah Grey'', Gene joins the circus. As an aerialist, she discovers the joy of flight - but the circus has a dark side. She's also plagued by visions foretelling danger.

A storm is howling in from the past, but will she heed its roar?
