A world where the sun never sets; where there is no day and no night; and where shadows never move. Beyond an oasis of light, the freezing outer darkness stretches far away.
In this strange environment we follow the stories of three remarkable young people.
Together, these three must struggle to save their world. And in saving it, they change it and themselves forever.
Here’s what Bruce Gillespie, editor of the award-winning critical magazine *SF Commentary* says about it:
“A real winner… Unputdownable… I found the characters instantly interesting, and the novel keeps on delivering surprises that undermine one’s expectations about the world they live in. And the landscape itself remains very vivid and interesting… If any novel deserves the top awards in the YA category, it is this one.”
This story is written in layers that unfold with every page turn. There is the social conflict going on between the clans. There is the internal conflict within the central characters. But what keeps you reading is the overriding question of what is really going on in this world of constant sunlight? How did they get there? There are early hints (no spoilers here) that it happens in the future. And early hints that things are happening in the dark. If you want to know more than that, you’ll have to read it yourself! It’s brilliant storytelling and I can’t wait to see the sequel. – D. S. White
