The plaque on Mrs. Ink’s lawn reads the Edgington Mansion, it was once thought to be lovely, though now rather decrepit and certainly full of secrets. She lives here with her husband. He is a philosopher, and said to be quite mad. According to Mrs. Ink their house is full of books, “Stacked, piled, and always advancing out and away from the shelves that ought to keep them in.” She paints and draws, writes and reads, and occasionally goes down into the dark, dismal, cobweb-creepy dungeon, to do laundry.

"The stars have aligned to make my life grim and loathsome." Fourteen year old Leila Edgewick stands on the brink of disaster, balancing the fate of Bainland and her father's legacy against a vague, ill-fated prophecy. A meaningless number, a luckless red moon, and worst of all– a star that falls South, send Leila on quest she does not expect to survive. Simultaneously, an unknown boy wakes up in the sunken hull of a decrepit cargo ship. Captured and mind locked, the boy– dubbed Sam by the crew– must escape from the infamous ship Bonesplitter and the dark schemes of one Captain Erastacus Oren. When Leila and Sam's paths cross, fate ties them together, sending them across the Ramble in search of the Wasteland Witches and a healer named Atara Valatrix. Plagued by Sam's erratic memory and Leila's dubious rational, they must outwit the Southland drudge hunters, and take on the dangers of the Ramble: sandwolves, bloodswamps, and the Kartivause – terrifying night creatures from the Shadowland.
