Robert Canderelli Weekes’s dream has come true: the first male allowed to join the US Sigilry Corps’s Rescue and Evacuation service, an all-woman team of flying medics. But as he deploys to France during the Great War, Canderelli learns that carrying the injured is not the grand adventure he imagined. His division has no patience, but slowly Robert wins their trust and discovers his comrades are plotting to end the Great War by outlawed philosophical means. Robert becomes caught up with running raids in enemy territory and uncovering vital intelligence. Friends old and new will need his help with a dangerous scheme that just might win the war and save lives. But the German smokecarvers have plans of their own: an attack that threatens to destroy the Corps and France itself. Naturally, Robert is trapped right in the thick of it.

Robert Weekes is a practitioner of empirical philosophy --- an arcane, female-dominated branch of science used to summon the wind, shape clouds of smoke, heal the injured, and even fly. When a deadly accident puts his philosophical abilities to the test, Robert wins a scholarship to study at Radcliffe College, an all-women’s school. He falls hard for Danielle Hardin, a disillusioned young war hero turned political radical. However, Danielle’s activism and Robert’s recklessness attract the attention of the same fanatical anti-philosophical group that Robert’s mother fought years before. Robert and Danielle band together to fight for Robert’s place among the next generation of empirical philosophers --- and for philosophy’s very survival against the men who would destroy it.
