There is a bird that can't be caught. It sings a song that reminds you of things you have forgotten, that heightens everything good you feel, that can charm you and trick you. Nobody has ever hunted it. But in the Blood Ward, where Nirrim lives, the idea of catching this bird is enough to change everything.
Nirrim's city is rife with crime and ruled by a tribunal that is quick to punish. She has heard that life is different outside the city walls, but people of her low status have never been allowed to leave. She has learned to trust no one but herself. She has learned to use secrets to her advantage.
But when the Elysium Bird appears at her window, Nirrim must learn to take a risk, hunt it down-and change her life.
