Thgindim Mountain is divided by rank. The rich live lavishly near the summit while the poor starve at the bottom and are beaten to dust by the brutal police force crawling their streets. Raine Ylevol has just been proclaimed as an adult, giving her the opportunity to leave her dull life and low-status at home and receive a career to drive forth her future. However, just as she believes she could be settling into the next dull stage of life-- an avalanche plows through it all, and with it, a girl caught among the rocks, a boy with a wolf who dwells in shadows, and a treasous secret that ties the three of them together. In an instant, Raine's eyes are opened. Ugly truths of her government reveal themselves, talents and feelings she never knew she had come into bloom, people she once thought were allies w pose a threat, and Raine must decide if she will remain true to her family and the life she's always kwn, or take the most dangerous risk of her life and let her heart guide her-- matter the consequences. Piercing Midnight is the thrilling beginning to The Infinity Chronicles, a new series for young adults.
