I join Elodie and Jago on the platform that I’ve come to think of as the launchpad.

         “You have three hours,” Roxane says. “That’s how long the portal remains open. If you need to leave sooner, Elodie has the clicker.”

I look at Elodie, who points to her left earring. Since the device needs to blend into the time period and match the look of whoever’s in charge, it’s made to look different each time. Still, my stomach sinks at the thought of Elodie being given ultimate control of whether I make it back safely.

“That’s three hours,” Roxane repeats, as though I could possibly forget. “If you’re late…” She pauses. “Well, let’s put it this way—don’t be.” The look that follows is grim. And while it accurately conveys the seriousness of the threat behind her words, I’m annoyed by her refusal to speak the more alarming truth: if I’m late, I’ll be stuck in 1745 forever.

         “Any questions?” she asks.

I shake my head, swallow past a dry lump in my throat.

“Good. And don’t worry, you’re going to be fine!” Roxane leaves me with an enthusiastic thumbs-up, then she and Keane head for the control room as a thick glass shield rises around Elodie, Jago, and me.

         “Ready?” Elodie grasps hold of my hand, as Jago takes the other.[nc1] 

I’ve spent the last four weeks fully immersed in my studies.

I’ve forgone weekends at the Gray Wolf spa—haven’t so much as peeked at the indoor pool, never mind Halcyon, the onsite nightclub everyone raves about—all in an effort to propel myself up the color wheel.

And now I’m here. Facing the final exam that will ultimately determine whether or not I make Blue.

         Of course, I’m not ready.

Not even close.

I can’t possibly master a new language and seamlessly blend into a culture totally foreign to my own in just the course of one month.

My stomach plunges to my knees. My heart makes the leap to my throat. Frantically, I look all around, searching for Braxton, needing to see his face one last time before I go.

         I find him still settled behind the glass in the control room. And though I can’t easily determine his expression, I watch as his finger taps at his chest, reminding me of his gift. Reminding me of who I am, when I am, and the celebration that awaits my return.

         I gaze down, set my focus on the blue moon, the glittering star.

         “First thing that’ll happen,” Elodie says. “The lights will begin to flicker and the ground will shake. Once the wind starts, whatever you do, do not let go of our hands.”




“An unputdownable, clever, modern fantasy!” –#1 NYT bestselling author Tracy Wolff

These days, I’ve been killing it when it comes to letting people down. Now I’ve been kicked out of high school, arrested, and accepted into a remote, off-the-grid school owned and operated by an inscrutable billionaire tech guru.

Gray Wolf Academy is looking for a certain kind of student. Ones that no one will miss. Like me.

Then there’s Braxton. The beautiful, oddly anachronistic guy who showed up right when the trouble started. And he’s a total enigma—which means that I definitely can’t trust him, even if there’s something about him that makes me want to.

They all tell me I have a gift. A very rare gift. And Gray Wolf Academy wants me to learn it. To use it. Because if what they say is true, I have all the time in the world.

And that makes me the most dangerous high school student you’ll never know…

The Stealing Infinity series is best enjoyed in order.
