Raamo has been chosen to rule Green-sky, but to uncover the secrets of his people, he’ll have to dig deep—very deep

Green-sky is an ideal place. Violence doesn’t exist. Its citizens, the Kindar, glide from tree to tree and exchange happy thoughts. This is all thanks to their rulers, the Ol-zhaan. And on his thirteenth birthday, Raamo D’ok is chosen to become one of the Ol-zhaan. Raamo is surprised to be named a Chosen. He isn’t a very good student—but the Ol-zhaan believe he has strong Spirit-force. But during his training, Raamo discovers that these good rulers aren’t as benevolent as they appear.

Now Raamo must decide: Should he keep the peace, or reveal the secrets that the Ol-zhaan have protected for so long?
