On the strange, stormy island of Blightsend, twelve-year-old
Delphernia Undersea has spent her whole life in the cloister of
turnaway girls, hidden from sea and sky by a dome of stone and the
laws of the island. Outside, the Masters play their music. Inside,
the turnaway girls silently make that music into gold. Making
shimmer, Mother Nine calls it. But Delphernia can't make shimmer.
She would rather sing than stay silent. When a Master who doesn't
act like a Master comes to the skydoor, it's a chance for
Delphernia to leave the cloister. Outside the stone dome, the sea
breathes like a wild beast, the sky watches with stars like eyes,
and even the gardens have claws. Outside, secrets fall silent in
halls without sound. And outside, Delphernia is caught -between the
island's sinister Custodian and its mysterious Childer-Queen.
Between a poem-speaking prince and a girl who feels like freedom.
And in a debut that glimmers with hope and beauty, freedom - to
sing, to change, to live - is precisely what's at stake.
