It has been 400 years since the Wonders established themselves here on Earth. Shortly after they arrived, the walls were erected, the protected Cities were established, and the first deadly wave of the Pox swept the world. Now, the Lord Proctor, Draven Lucere, rules what remains of the once-free nation. His lineage has sought to cripple the population in more ways than one; some apparent and some despicable and underhanded.
In this world of Wonders, Maia and those who accompany her must learn to adapt and survive, as they take the fight for freedom to the ruling elite who have held it from the rest of the population for generations.
