Eleven years ago, a shattered band of ancient hunters captured an unimaginable evil, and Phineas T. Pimiscule rescued his nephew, Sky, from the wreckage of that great battle. For eleven years, Sky Weathers has studied traps, puzzles, science, and the secret lore of the Hunters of Legend, believing it all a game. For eleven years, Sky and his family have hidden from dark enemies while his uncle Phineas sacrificed everything to protect them. For eleven years, Sky Weathers has known nothing of his peril. But on the eve of Sky’s twelfth birthday and his family’s long-awaited return to Exile, everything changes.
Phineas has disappeared, and Sky finds himself forced to confront the mysterious secrets of his past: Why did his family leave Exile eleven years ago? What, exactly, has Phineas been preparing him for? And, the biggest mystery of all, who is Sky really…and why does everyone want to kill him?
