Earth has been conquered by an alien race known as the Assembly. The adult human population is gone, having succumbed to the Tone - a powerful, telekinetic supersignal that has reduced them to a state of complete subservience. But the Tone has one critical flaw: it only affects those over the age of twenty, which means that there is one group left to fight - teens.
Holt, Mira, and Max have fled Midnight City with Zoey after watching her repel an entire Assembly army. Zoey's powers are unlocked, but who and what she is remains a mystery. All she knows is that she must reach the Severed Tower, an infamous spot in the middle of the world's most dangerous landscape: The Strange Lands, a place where the laws of physics have completely broken down. But the closer they get to the tower, the more precarious things become.
"Highly recommended! Awesome narration!"
