Author(s): Ann Aguirre
Ann Aguirre's dystopian YA saga continues with this companion fourth volume in the Razorland series
Since the war ended, Tegan has dreamed of an epic journey, so when she has the opportunity to sign on as ship's doctor, she can't wait. It's past time to chart her course. Millie Faraday, the kindest girl in the free territories, also yearns to outrun her reputation, and warrior-poet James Morrow would follow Tegan to the ends of the earth.
Their company seems set, but fate brings one more to their number. Tegan will battle incredible odds while aiding Szarok, the Uroch vanguard, who has ventured forth to save his people. Szarok is strange and beautiful, like a flower that blooms only in the dark. She shouldn't allow him close, as such a relationship is both alien and forbidden. But through stormy seas and strange lands, she will become stronger than she ever knew.
Aguirre impresses again with a tale that is sure to delight young adult readers who like strong heroines and high-stakes adventure.

Praise for Ann Aguirre and the Razorland series
"In her first young adult novel, Aguirre has created a gritty and highly competent heroine, an equally deadly sidekick/love interest, and a fascinating if unpleasant civilization. This series is likely to hold considerable appeal for fans of The Hunger Games." --Publishers Weekly
"This well-paced zombie-esque adventure in an urban wasteland will keep fans happy." --Kirkus Reviews
"Aguirre's young adult debut is a gripping survival story set in an apocalyptic future. . . . This is a tense, action-packed dystopia with intriguingly gray characters." --Booklist
