Fallon Swift, approaching her thirteenth birthday, barely knows the world that existed before - the city where her parents lived, now in ruins and reclaimed by nature since the Doom sickened and killed billions. Traveling anywhere is a danger, as vicious gangs of Raiders and fanatics called Purity Warriors search for their next victim. Those like Fallon, in possession of gifts, are hunted - and the time is coming when her true nature, her identity as The One, can no longer be hidden. In a mysterious shelter in the forest, her training is about to begin under the guidance of Mallick, whose skills have been honed over centuries.

Enjoyable and easy to follow, but not as great as I'd hoped. The main character Alice spends the book trying to get her memories back and find love, but that's not an urgent enough mission to give this story any, well, urgency. The ending was a bit contrived also. But that said, I listened to the whole story in 3 days, was entertained throughout, and enjoyed this Aussie tale. Would recommend for those looking for a light read that wont keep you awake at night!

Another great addition to this fantastic series. These books were a staple of my youth growing up, and probably even more enjoyable second time around. Book 4 doesn't disappoint
