In a decimated world, setting foot outside the protected village of Tallas is certain death—or so they say. Mutations caused by those in the wilderness have plagued Tallas’s citizens—or so they say…
For Doogan and Keeyla their belief in a Free Tallas has lost its glimmer. And when their young son, Fabal, is given a very dangerous assignment, they risk everything to protect him. Fleeing Tallas, they head for the wilderness. But when they are ambushed by cruel Mediators, Doogan is recaptured, and while Keeyla and Fabal escape, she is severely injured.
Can the two of them survive in the wilderness? Will Doogan getaway from the clutches of the Mediators? And are the terrible legends about the monsters beyond the walls of Tallas true?
“Constantine tells a compelling story, fraught with danger, love triangles, the never-ending fight for justice and freedom, and the war between right and wrong. Her characters are charming, even those which more limbs, fingers, and/or toes than most of us have. The plot is well thought out and strong. I give the book 4.7 Stars” Taylor Jones, reviewer
“I thought the characters were well-developed, three-dimensional, and endearing. The book is a page-turner. It starts out with the mother and son sneaking out of Tallas in the middle of the night, and just gets more edge-of-the-seat from there. I was hooked from the very first page and had a hard time putting it down until I finished. I, too, am giving it 4.7 Stars”Regan Murphy, reviewer
