Product Description

“We were in the square, in the square where I’d run, holding her, carrying her, telling her to stay alive, stay alive till we got safe, till we got to Haven so I could save her. But there weren’t no safety, no safety at all, there was just him and his men.”

Fleeing before a relentless army, Todd has carried a desperately wounded Viola right into the hands of their worst enemy, Mayor Prentiss. Torn from Viola and imprisoned, Todd is forced to learn the ways of the Mayor’s new order. But what secrets are hidden just outside town? Where is Viola? Is she even still alive? And who are the mysterious Answer? Todd has no answers of his own – until one day, the bombs begin to explode… This heart-stopping sequel to the prize-winning The Knife of Never Letting Go is a tense, shocking and deeply moving tale of resistance against the most extreme odds.

    Totally brilliant

    I absolutely love this trilogy – totally ground-breaking. If, like me, you think that pretty much every story has been told, then try this. The story of a planet where your thoughts are continuously broadcast twists and turns in such surprising directions that edge-of-your seat, game-changing cliffhangers almost become the norm. It’s bleak and heart-breaking at times too, so prepare yourself for an emotional journey. So totally brilliant that I want everyone to read it! (And one more thing: could this be the most unfilmable story ever? Read it and you’ll see what I mean!)
