The second book in the thrilling series that began with
The Philosopher’s Flight finds Robert Canderelli
Weekes as a rookie Rescue and Evacuation flier on the front
lines of World War I in France. He came to save lives, but
has no idea how far he’ll have to go to win the war.
Thanks to a stunning flying performance and a harrowing
shootout in the streets of Boston, Robert Canderelli
Weekes’s lifelong dream has come true: he’s the first male
allowed to join the US Sigilry Corps’s Rescue and Evacuation
service, an elite, all-woman team of flying medics.
But as he deploys to France during the waning days of the
Great War, Sigilwoman Third-Class Canderelli learns that
carrying the injured from the front lines to the field
hospital is not the grand adventure he imagined. His
division, full of misfits and renegades, is stretched the
breaking point and has no patience for a man striving to
prove himself. Slowly, Robert wins their trust and discovers
his comrades are plotting to end the Great War by outlawed
philosophical means. Robert becomes caught up in their
conspiracy, 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
overnight and save a few million lives. But the German
smokecarvers have plans of their own: a devastating all-out
attack that threatens to destroy the Corps and France
itself. Naturally, Robert is trapped right in the thick of it.
The Philosopher’s War is the electrifying next
chapter in Robert Weekes’s story, filled with heroic,
unconventional women, thrilling covert missions, romance
and, of course, plenty of aerial adventures. The second book
in a series “that grabs readers from its opening lines and
doesn’t loosen its grip or lessen its hold all the way
through” (Associated Press), Tom Miller again brings
Robert’s world to life with unrivaled imagination, ambition,
