There are no men in Claysoot. There are boys – but every one of them vanishes at midnight on his eighteen birthday. The ground shakes, the wind howls, a blinding light descends… and he’s gone.
They call it the Heist.
Gray Weathersby’s eighteenth birthday is mere months away, and he’s prepared to meet his fate – until he finds a strange note from his mother and starts to question everything he’s been raised to accept: the Council leaders and their obvious secrets. The Heist itself. And what lies beyond the Wall that surrounds Claysoot – a structure that no one can cross and survive.
Climbing the Wall is suicide, but what comes after Heist could be worst. Should he sit back and wait to be taken – or risk everything on the hope of the other side?
