    At an exclusive school somewhere outside of Arlington, Virginia, students aren't taught history, geography, or mathematics - at least not in the usual ways. Instead, they are taught to persuade. Here the art of coercion has been raised to a science. Students harness the hidden power of language to manipulate the mind and learn to break down individuals by psychographic markers in order to take control of their thoughts. The very best will graduate as "poets": adept wielders of language who belong to a nameless organization that is as influential as it is secretive.

    Two years ago, something terrible was unleashed in an Australian mining town called Broken Hill. Thousands died. Few people know what really happened. Emily Ruff is one of them. She belongs to an elite organisation of 'poets': masters of manipulation who use language to warp others to their will. She was one of their most promising recruits until she made a catastrophic mistake: she fell in love. Wil Parke knows the truth too, only he doesn't remember it.

    Worte sind Waffen: Wil Parke ist ein einfacher Zimmermann. Oder zumindest glaubt er das. Bis er auf einer Flughafentoilette in Portland von zwei Männern angegriffen wird. Sie behaupten, er sei der Schlüssel in einem geheimen Krieg, ein "Ausreißer", immun gegen die Kraft der Worte. Sie zwingen ihn mitzukommen in die Geisterstadt Broken Hill, deren gesamte Bevölkerung bei einem Chemieunfall vor zwei Jahren ausgelöscht wurde. Dort soll ein mächtiges Artefakt verborgen liegen, das den Krieg ein für alle Mal beenden könnte.
