about

A new fantasy-adventure series from the co-creator of the hit animated shows Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra!

In twelve-year-old Giacomo's Renaissance-inspired world, art is powerful, dangerous, and outlawed. A few artists possess Geniuses, birdlike creatures that are the living embodiment of an artist's creative spirit. Those caught with one face a punishment akin to death, so when Giacomo discovers he has a Genius, he knows he's in serious trouble.

Luckily, he finds safety in a secret studio where young artists and their Geniuses train in sacred geometry to channel their creative energies as weapons. But when a murderous artist goes after the three Sacred Tools--objects that would allow him to destroy the world and everyone in his path-Giacomo and his friends must risk their lives to stop him.

"DiMartino masterfully weaves a thrilling action-adventure epic into an imaginative and terrifying world." -Bryan Konietzko, co-creator of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra

There is so much to love about this book!" -Gene Yang, National Ambassador for Young People's Literature and author of American Born Chinese

"DiMartino delivers a magical take on the power of art.

A lively, thrilling spin on the struggle to create."-Leigh Bardugo, author of the Grisha trilogy and the Six of Crows series
