‘SPECTACULAR!’ No. 1 bestselling author Martina Cole
‘UNPUTDOWNABLE’ Irish Times

Discover the thrilling stand-alone novel set in the same world as the million-copy bestseller THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS – now also a major film on Netflix.

Once upon a time, in a land blighted by terror, there was a very clever boy.

The people thought the boy could save them, so they opened their gates and sent him out into the world.

To where the monsters lived.

I loved it just as much as The Girl With All the Gifts, if not more Martina Cole
