‘This sequel captures the essence of my novel and takes my characters on a tense and dangerous journey through the world of The Severed Land.’ - Maurice Gee
Picking up where The Severed Land left off, this suspense-filled novel continues the story of the brave ex-slave Fliss. Despite her idyllic new life behind the safety of the wall, she can’t help longing for someone special of her own. That's when a young man appears, preaching peace and unity.
His arrival, however, is about to send Fliss and her friend Minnie back through the wall on a hazardous mission. There’s danger at every corner, perilous journeys and the constant threat of betrayal and capture.
