What readers are saying about
“For me, this book is near perfection. It had all the ingredients I look for in an "end of the world" book.
“The writing is brilliant. Never thought to find that from an author in this genre. I so look forward to reading the next in this series. Will be following this author.
“If the sequel(s) continue to be as good, I truly believe this story could become a classic in the genre.”
What critics are saying about
From the Historical Novel Society:
"The many heartbreaks of human trafficking and the systematic racism on which many American frontier towns were built form the backdrop of the plot of Carla Baku's well-designed and emotionally charged debut novel.
There's a genuine power in Ya Zhen's story, and Baku captures that power mainly through the well-researched believability of her book's setting.
A strong and unflinching read."
