Things have changed for 17-year-old Zoe ever since the dramatic events that brought her together with the mysterious X took place. To save Zoe and her family, X did the unthinkable - he won their freedom by giving himself up to captivity in the Lowlands forever.

But being back in the Lowlands has its advantages. It gives X the chance to discover his past, which could be the key to breaking the Lords' hold on him for good. Little does X know that Zoe has a plan to reunite them ... one that will see her risk her life and bring her perilously close to losing all that she and X are fighting for.

Gripping and full of heart, this epic continuation of Jeff Giles's series, which already has rave reviews from Oscar-winning director Peter Jackson and New York Times bestselling authors Cassandra Clare and James Dashner, will bring readers right to the edge of everything.

About Jeff Giles

Jeff Giles grew up in Cohasset, Massachusetts. Most recently, he was the deputy managing editor of Entertainment Weekly, where he oversaw all coverage of movies and books, including the magazine's championing of YA fiction. Jeff has written for Rolling Stone and the New York Times Books Review. He also co-authored The Terrorist's Son, a non-fiction book that won an Alex Award from the American Library Association and has since been translated into more than a dozen languages. While reporting on the Lord of the Rings movies for Newsweek, Jeff was invited to be an extra in The Return of the King. He played a Rohan soldier and - because he didn't have a beard or moustache - they glued yak hair to his face. Jeff lives with his family in Montana.
