O'Keefe The Sukai Dynasty has ruled the Phoenix Empire for over a century, their mastery of bone shard magic powering the monstrous constructs that maintain law and order.

But now the emperor's rule is failing, and revolution is sweeping across the Empire's many islands. Lin is the Emperor's daughter, but a mysterious illness has stolen her childhood memories and her status as heir to the empire.

Trapped in a palace of locked doors and old secrets, Lin vows to reclaim her birthright by mastering the forbidden art of bone shard magic. But the mysteries behind such power are dark and deep, and wielding her family's magic carries a great cost.

When the revolution reaches the gates of the palace itself, Lin must decide how far she is willing to go to claim her throne - and save her people.
