In 1955, Crown City seceded from the Old Nation and became the first metropolis in the sky. Twenty years later, Geddy, a thief under contract to a crime syndicate, meets a mysterious and quirky young man named Alex, who happens to be the son of the city’s founder. Alex is a blast of color in the dreary landscape of Geddy’s life, and it’s not long before they fall for each other.
But the root of Alex’s eccentricity might be more complicated than Geddy ever imagined, and the closer he gets to Alex, the closer he comes to unraveling the tragic riddle of Alex’s life. Soon, dark secrets come to light about Crown City’s founder that change Alex’s world forever. Geddy’s keeping secrets of his own, including his tragic, bloodstained past, and his grudging duty to the Wreckers, a group of underground insurgents who have owned his allegiance for the last six years. When the Wreckers set their sights on Alex, Geddy knows the only way to save him is a daring escape from Crown City to the reviled Old Nation below. As anarchy erupts around him, Geddy must attempt the impossible and discover if he has the strength to survive the aftermath....
