Logos Peregrin grew up in southern US suburbs. Preferring the adventures of stories to the tedium of the real world, Logos wanted to be a writer from the age of five. Only her twin sister, an avid reader herself, kindled within Logos any kind of interest in the world around her.

Then, when the Peregrin twins turned eight, life handed Logos the perfect story. By handing her sister the perfect book.

Suddenly, this world didn’t seem real. It was overlaid with a strange, new truth. A multiday disappearance and a near-death experience led to the discovery of a power inherent within names and language. A power the Peregrin twins learned both to avoid and to harness. A power that shapes Logos’s writings as surely as it shapes the lives of both her and her sister.
