From Marie Lu: “Everyone knows about Bruce as a child and how he lost his parents, but then we jump in the narrative to him as a fully realized adult, navigating an adult world with adult problems as an established billionaire. But Bruce’s teenage life is a black hole. As such a high-profile kid, what was it like for him to lose his parents? To have his trust funds open for the first time? How did he navigate the challenges of adolescence?”
From the publisher: The Nightwalkers are terrorizing Gotham City, and Bruce Wayne is next on their list.
One by one, the city’s elites are being taken out as their mansions’ security systems turn against them, trapping them like prey. Meanwhile, Bruce is turning eighteen and is about to inherit his family’s fortune, not to mention the keys to WayneTech. But after a run-in with the police, he’s forced to do community service at Arkham Asylum, the infamous prison that holds the city’s most brutal criminals.
In Arkham, Bruce meets Madeleine, a brilliant girl with ties to the Nightwalkers. A girl who will speak only to Bruce. Madeleine is the mystery Bruce must unravel. But is he getting her to divulge her secrets, or is he feeding her the information she needs to bring Gotham City to its knees? Bruce will walk the dark line between trust and betrayal as the Nightwalkers circle closer.
