"It doesn’t matter what kind of monster it is. Anger, heartbreak or the Dead. They all feed on the same thing… Chaos."
Peter and Cooper arrive in West Wranglestone searching for a fresh start. Could this be the place where the living and the Returned can exist together and finally be safe? A place to call home?
But West Wranglestone is far from the utopia they were hoping for and the forces controlling the town have powers beyond anything the two boys ever imagined. As Cooper grows closer to others like himself, Peter ends up confessing his fears about the Returned to the sheriff’s son, Teddy.
Can Peter and Cooper set aside their differences and learn to trust each other again?
A thrilling and thought-provoking sequel to the highly acclaimed WRANGLESTONE, for fans of Patrick Ness, Marcus Sedgwick, DREAD NATION and The Walking Dead.
