“The overloaded color spectrum flashed violently in front of his eyes as he felt a vacuum form where his aura had burst.”

After years of training among splicers—a secluded community of people able to make auras of energy surround their bodies and burst into concussive blasts—Madrigale is ready to run away.

She has failed to become a successful splicer at every attempt while it comes so naturally to other students. They have been taught that their power comes from their communion with one another, which troubles Madrigale even more, an outsider among a close-knit population.

On the eve of her escape, however, her instructors pair her with Logan, the best splicer among her peers, and the two receive an assignment to escort a group of visitors, who made a recent pilgrimage to the tower where the splicers live, back home through a countryside riddled with bandits and an unforgiving wilderness. Now with the perfect opportunity to never return, Madrigale must decide between her responsibilities and her true desires, and she must decide if she can bring herself to risk Logan’s life and the lives of innocent visitors in order to escape.

She is nearly certain that she very well can.

The time had come to send splicers to visit the homelands of these travelers. He had to get to the central platform of the Ether Edifice to begin the selection process.

Illoso stepped off the balcony toward the hollow center of the tower without hesitation or concern for the one-hundred-foot drop below him.
