Twelve-year-old Octavia grew up believing Vittoria was the only town left in the world–until she escapes into a land teeming with monsters, lies, and dark magic. Perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman, Kate Milford, and Jonathan Auxier.
Years ago, powerful sorcerers waged a terrible war, unleashing strange monsters and a deadly plague that swept over the land. Now the people of Vittoria never leave the safety of their high walls except to hunt and scavenge nearby. Venturing farther is strictly forbidden by the town council, and no one has ever survived an attempt–including Octavia's sister, Hana.
But one day, the impossible happens: Octavia is stuck outside the walls at nighttime, and she meets a stranger. Everything Octavia thought she knew is called into question, and so she embarks on an epic quest to uncover the truth of her town, the rest of the world, and her own family.
Packed with twists, frightening monsters, and timely themes, this is a page-turning fantasy adventure by the critically acclaimed Kali Wallace.
