Flight is freedom, but death hangs in the skies....

Taya soars over Ondinium on metal wings. She is an Icarus, a courier privileged to travel freely across the city's sectors and mingle indiscriminately amongst its castes. But even she cannot outfly the web of terrorism, loyalty, murder, and intrigue that snares her after a daring mid-air rescue. Taya finds herself entangled with the Forlore brothers, scions of an upper-class family: handsome, brilliant Alister, who sits on Ondinium's governing council and writes programs for the Great Engine; and awkward, sharp-tongued Cristof, who has exiled himself from his caste and repairs clocks in the lowest sector of the city. Both hide dangerous secrets, in the city that beats to the ticking of a clockwork heart.

Taya is an Icarus, a messenger who flies over the city of Ondinium on metal wings. The day she assists in a daring midair rescue she is drawn into intrigue and meets two highborn brothers who couldn't be more different. This book has action, romance and a good explanation of how functions work in computer programming. Wow!
