There are fourteen survivors.
Trapped in by a strange force-field called the 'no-go', cut off from the world outside, they must pull together, bury the dead and face their fears.
Because whatever caused the insanity is still at large. And it hasn't finished with them yet.
Wake is a riveting tour-de-force. A book about extreme events, ordinary people, heroic compassion - and invisible monsters.
Now fifteen-year-old Laura and her cousin Rose, daughters of Dreamhunters, are eligible to test themselves at the Place and find out whether they qualify for the passage. But nothing can prepare them for what they are about to discover. For within the Place lies a horrific secret kept hidden by corrupt members of the government. And when Laura's father, the man who discovered the Place, disappears, she realizes that this secret has the power to destroy everyone she loves . . .
In the midst of a fascinating landscape, Laura's dreamy childhood is ending and a nightmare beginning. This rich novel, filled with beauty, danger, politics, and intrigue, comes to a powerful crescendo, leaving readers clamoring for Book Two.
