sensational and sinister, with dark ties to his past and a twisty path to his future. 

The Iron Trial is just the beginning, for the biggest test is still to come . . .

Piper McCloud can fly. Sure, she hasn't mastered reverse propulsion and her turns are kind of sloppy,

top-secret, maximum-security school for kids with exceptional abilities. School is great at first with a

bunch of new friends whose skills range from super-strength to super-genius. But Piper is special,

even among the special. And there are consequences. Consequences too dire to talk about. Too crazy

to consider. And too dangerous to ignore.
