Publisher's Summary

Falling through the window of their family's cozy house into a dark and bitter world, riven by sectarian violence and struggle, five siblings search for a way out - and discover extraordinary talents deep within themselves on their path toward love.

When siblings Susan, Max, Nell, Kate, and Jean suddenly find themselves in a completely foreign world, they are thrust into a fascinating adventure. An ancient prophecy leads them into a war between mysterious forces, and as they try desperately to remain united and find their way home, the society crumbling around them demands their attention and yet threatens to tear them apart.

Elaborately told from alternating perspectives with exquisite attention to each character's voice, the story follows Max, Nell, Kate, and Susan as they strive to make sense of their stunning predicament in their own ways. A fantastical dystopian tale filled with nuanced looks at morality, sibling relationships, and the meaning of home, this daring novel, by the extraordinary author of Zebra Forest, explores the essence of what it means to be human and what holds a society together.

Really enjoyed the book.

The author does an impressive job switching rolls from character to character throughout the book. Each has a distinct voice. The Emily Sutton-Smith was a bit flat at times, but Luke Daniels is amazing as always.
