After only a few days at her grandparents', Katherine is already bored. Deciding to explore the woods nearby, it isnít long before the Blue Man finds her.|
Some items have been stolen from him, items he would very much like back. Without hesitation, Katherine agrees to find them. After all, it is a chance at magic, a chance she has looked for all her life.
The Blue Man sends her to a city where puddles are much deeper and lead to very unexpected places. It is a world where towering dragons fight in the furthest reaches of the sky, where the blue ends and the darkness of the universe begins. It is a place where indoor forests hide under massive domes and are only the entryways to secret, hidden things.
And when her journey becomes dangerous, she wonders why she has been given a partner who doesnít want to be there, a guide who is always looking to escape, and an assignment that is next to impossible.
