In a world where humanity lives in the sky to escape a deadly mist below, Cass’s only goal is survival. That is, until she finds a job on the airship Daedalus as a diver. Now she explores ruined cities, looking for treasure and people’s lost heirlooms until a young man hires her to find the impossible: a way to eradicate the Mist.

Theodore Winchester is a member of one of the Five Families that rule the skies. Following in his father’s footsteps, he searches for the source of the Mist and hopes to stop the purges used to control overpopulation. But what he finds are horrifying secrets and lethal ambition. If he continues his quest, it could mean his own death.

The Mist is rising and soon the world will be enveloped in its deadly embrace, turning what’s left of humanity into the undead.

Such an interesting book. It took a few chapters to get into it while learning all the backstory but once in I loved getting to know Cas and following her journey. The Mist is such an eerie backdrop and the author's descriptions are vivid and give a real sense of devastation and a bit of horror. I never knew exactly where this story was going or where it would end up. Well done. I have my teenage son reading it next.
