JACKS is a pickpocket. JEREMY is a loner. FINN is a genius. ADDY is a flirt. CORRY is a decoder. And ZIRA is their leader. They are THE FLAMES, and The Last Burning of New London is their saga. Hundreds of years in the future, Jacks watches the burners murder her parents on her front lawn. She grows up on the streets of New London, a citizen of the Empire. She survives as a pickpocket, helping those in need when she can, hiding from the DRT and the Emperor's reach. Until one day she meets Corry and Zira, the leaders of the Flames-- the resistance. The Flames wage an underground battle with the Empire, leaving lit candles in their wake as a symbol of their defiance. Secrets hidden by the Empire stand in the way of their efforts to save their world, but secrets of their own could tear the group apart before they ever get the chance.
