Kali has always been obedient, but when she takes her first step onto a protected humans only high school in suburban Pittsburgh, she kws she was the wrong choice for this mission. Ever since the murder of her parents when she was too young to remember, she's been sheltered - and trained. She can swing a sword with expert precision, but studying popular human teen magazines hasn't taught her how to masquerade as seventeen years old. Jason is the target of the mission. She and Yuuhi, who was also designated by his own people to be her partner, must find solid proof that Jason is, in fact, a supernatural phemen. Yuuhi sees little more than a socially inept emo kid dressed in conflicting shades of black, but Kali only touches Jason's hand, and she feels the sting of something dark and deadly. Jason's shadow is bigger than he is, and if the leaders of Yuuhi's people find out, Jason won't be human much longer. The goal of the mission is to protect him, but Kali will find that the only way she can do just that is to break every rule she's been conditioned to follow. She'll have to learn how to disobey. Beginning with Kali's point of view and then shifting to the eyes of other characters, the Marionettes of Myth series introduces Pittsburgh as a superhuman metropolis, a world both wild and conquered by the monsters buried in its seams and darkest shadows. And those monsters will be watching her.
