The Nothing Within
Date: March 2020
Duration: 13 hours 40 minutes
In this 'magical, terrifying, and whimsical debut' (Publishers Weekly starred review), a biological disaster reverberates in Ohio Amish country long after the near-extinction of humankind. A young woman must try to save what remains of the human race. A 'mesmerizing end-of-the-world adventure' (Kirkus Reviews) that is 'nothing short of a storytelling masterwork'(BlueInk Review in Booklist).
Root is . . . different. Though raised in a fearful society that reveres conformity, she's irreverent, outspoken, and deeply curious. Her congenital blindness sets her even further apart.
Centuries after the Reckoning, a biotech disaster, savage chimeras still threaten human survival. When Root hears a voice that no one else can hear, she flees into the wilderness. Outcast and hunted, she must confront a dire threat to her people-and unravel the mystery of who she really is.
