Publisher Comments:

The first pick of NBC's Today Book Club

Featured in New York, USA Today, and Forbes, and on CNN.com.

It appeared on every summer reading list for 2013, from Entertainment Weekly to USA Today. Now, the debut that thrilled readers everywhere is available in paperback. Enter the world of Paige Mahoney, a gifted clairvoyant, a “dreamwalker,” in the year 2059. Her natural talents are considered treasonous under the current regime. Snatched away to a secret prison, she encounters another race, the Rephaim, creatures who wish to control the powers of Paige and those like her. One in particular will be assigned as her keeper, her trainer. But his motives are mysterious. To regain her freedom, Paige must learn to trust, in the prison where she is meant to die.

Review:

“Terrific — intelligent, inventive, dark, and engrossing...Shannon has remarkable talent for world-building....But her most sublime otherworldly creation is the complex, ever evolving, scrappy yet touching Paige Mahoney....[She] has me hooked.” NPR.com

Review:

“Invokes both the political tyranny of George Orwell and the...mythmaking of J.R.R. Tolkien.” USA Today

Review:

“Action-filled....Shannon is likely on the brink of literary stardom.” New York

Review:

“[A] dazzlingly brainy, witty, and bewitching tale of outrageous courage, heroic compassion, transcendent love, and the quest for freedom...the first in a thoughtful fantasy series by a brilliant young writer.” Booklist (starred review)

Review:

"This book is for those who like their dystopian science fiction multilayered, philosophical and complex." Kirkus Reviews
