Overview

"This magical, terrifying, and whimsical debut is a genuinely original and immersive take on post-apocalyptic SF."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

In 2161, the first chimera arose. A year later, twelve billion people were dead. The few who survived called it the Reckoning.

Generations later, their descendants hide within the walls of small, rustic villages, cowering from chimeras. They revere tradition. They fear innovation. They mistrust anything that's different.

Root couldn't be more different.

Curious and irreverent, she disquiets her village. Blind daughter of the village guardian, she stands apart. Frustrated with a wall-bound life, she grudgingly accepts it—until she hears the voice that no one else can hear.

Root's journey will take her into the wilds to discover the truth: that her world has been twisted by people trying to save it. And her choices will determine whether humankind's last ember flickers out.

A rural-dystopian novel exploring post-apocalyptic Amish country, a society shaped by fear, and private choices that remake the world.

About the Author

In fourth grade, Andy Giesler fell in love with writing. His debut novel, Attack of the Dinosaurs, was seventeen pages long: the heart-pounding tale of Alaskan scientists using nuclear bombs to prospect for gasoline and-as happens all too often-inadvertently waking frozen dinosaurs. He promised himself that, one day, he'd write an even longer book.

Many years later while reading bedtime stories to his kids, he fell in love with writing all over again. He decided it was time.

Andy has been a library page, dairy science programmer, teacher, technical writer, and healthcare software developer. He's a husband, father, and nonprofit web consultant living in Madison, Wisconsin.
