About this audiobook

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.
