Inga’s family spent their life savings to get her into the Artifice Academy, but the hard work is only beginning. Cut off from all that she knows, singled out by cruel bullies and heartless teachers, she must learn quickly in order to survive the Academy.
The Academy is the greatest higher-learning institution on the continent, where they make machines capable of incredible wonders: her best hope for rising above her peasant life of hard labor.
Mad science, friendship and betrayal, Black Sand, politics: the Artifice Academy is a hard place: every moment a lesson, every lesson a trap. Inga dares to hope, walking a tightrope of isolation between failure and madness.
