Veda is told all her life to “beware the Night.” As a citizen of Bellona and as a Basso, her life is filled with the struggle to find food, survive with her grandfather, and to not be captured from the notorious Night. With her best friend Nico, Veda has to figure out what her boundaries are, as relationships between the Imperi and Basso are forbidden. After a run-in with the Imperi, Veda finds herself in the caverns of the Night with the handsome Dorian. Everything she believed is thrown on its head as she discovers that all the horrific things the Night did were actually led by the government she used to trust. With her discovery of the truth and her role as lunalette, she must become the symbol for the rebellion, even if it means going against everything she used to know.
