When the three runaways - Sal, Shilly and Skender - finally arrive at the remote island of the Haunted City, home of the Sky Wardens, Sal's great-aunt, the Syndic, is determined to keep them under control. And if that means imprisonment, so be it. But the Syndic isn't the least of Sal's worries. The ghosts that live behind the ancient glass of the city are restless and no one know why or what they can do. The golem will force Sal to do its bidding by whatever means necessary ...even murder. And it seems that the Weavers have their own plans for the three of them - but what and who are they? Few people believe they exist, and those who do keep their knowledge close to their chests. Whichever path Sal chooses, it seems the price to pay is very high for those closest to him. But he must decide ...or submit to a future not of his making.
