Product description

They’re coming. They’re gonna wipe all the teens out. Unless Nessa can fight, she’ll die. (Even if she can, the odds stink.) Ever see folks training for the Marathon, and think ‘why do they even do it?’ Well, there’s a very good reason why Nessa puts herself through Boyle College’s gruelling training regime. Like all Irish kids, Nessa and her friends must prepare for the scariest time of their lives: The Call. Any day now, without warning, they’ll each wake in a terrifying land. For a merciless day, they’ll be hunted and tortured. Only a handful will make it back alive. No one’s placing any bets on Nessa: the girl on crutches, with crippled legs. Many are Called. Few make it back. But Nessa intends to survive.

  • A dark and completely original take on dystopian battle fiction
  • Think The Hunger Games in a twisted supernatural faerie world
  • Set in an Ireland where the ruthless Sidhe have risen to take revenge
  • Disabled heroine Nessa is a brilliant character you’ll really root for
