Description


Ansul was once a peaceful town filled with libraries, schools, and temples. But that was long ago, and the conquerors of this coastal city consider reading and writing to be acts punishable by death. And they believe the Oracle House, where the last few undestroyed books are hidden, is seething with demons. But to seventeen-year-old Memer, the house is the only place where she feels truly safe.
    
Then an Uplands poet named Orrec and his wife, Gry, arrive, and everything in Memer's life begins to change. Will she and the people of Ansul at last be brave enough to rebel against their oppressors?
    
Includes an interview with the author and a teaser to the third book in the series, Powers.

This is a wild story -- from beginning to end. There isn't another dystopian book like it and it truly is about a quest to find one's self. And with a grand twist that no one will see coming, this propulsive book will resonate with you long after the last page. Highly recommended. - Maureen
