About the book: ✨ Deluxe edition with special embellishments on first printing only. ✨

Les Misérables meets The Lunar Chronicles in the out-of-this-world sequel to Sky Without Stars that's an "explosion of emotion, intrigue, romance, and revolution" (Stephanie Garber, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Caraval series).

A traitor. 
A prisoner. 
A fugitive.

Wanted by the Regime. Destined to save the planet. 

Laterre is on the brink of war. The Third Estate are rioting against the injustices of a corrupt system. The Patriarche, reeling from the murder of his only heir, makes brutal attempts to quash the unrest, while a new militant faction launches a series of deadly attacks. 

And three outlaws find themselves pulled into the fray... 

Marcellus is now a traitor to his planet, willing to do anything to stop his grandfather from seizing control of Laterre, even if it means joining the Vangarde, a rebel group back from the dead. 

Chatine is a prisoner on Bastille. Desperate to survive the harsh conditions of the moon, she becomes embroiled in the Vangarde's dangerous attempt to free their infamous leader. 

Alouette is a fugitive who has been lied to her entire life. Searching for the truth about her mysterious past, she soon finds herself hunted by the Regime for reasons she's only beginning to understand. 

But when Laterre is threatened by the emergence of a deadly new weapon, these three renegades must risk everything, traveling to the far reaches of the System Divine and into the white hot center of a planet ready to ignite.
