The first in a brand-new, richly-immersive, magical fantasy trilogy from debut author Annaliese Avery, perfect for fans of Philip Pullman, Cornelia Funke, and Diana Wynn Jones. Defy your stars, rewrite the future. In the empire of Albion, the Great Dragons of old are long gone--hunted for centuries by cruel emperors fearing the power they possessed. Now governed by the science of Celestial Physicists, everyone's life is foretold by the track of stars on their wrist. When Paisley Fitzwilliam receives her track, she discovers that she is destined to die before the end of her fourteenth turning.
