Description of this Book

Ally Condie, the international bestselling author of the Matched trilogy, returns in an emotional and tensely plotted novel about revenge, grief, and self-reliance. The only thing Poe Blythe ever wanted was Call. Call was true love and hope in Poe's otherwise dim life as a machinist in the Settlement. Call was home. Poe and Call hungered for the chance to live in the untamed wilderness beyond the Settlement's walls--to make a new life, together. Hopeful for a taste of freedom, they take jobs on the river dredge--a hulking beast of a ship that claws its way across river bottoms in search of gold. But all their dreams are shattered the night raiders board the dredge and murder Call. Poe's world is irreparably fractured in the wake of Call's death and soon her only driving force is revenge, destruction of those who ripped Call away from her. She becomes the architect of a stronger dredge, outfitted with savage defense systems that will slaughter any outsider who attempts to board. But Poe never expected to return to the river, nor did she expect to return as the dredge's captain. With possible traitors in her midst and a looming unease about the true agenda of the Settlement's leadership, Poe's unexpected new voyage might also be her last. Poe is confident that her defenses will not fail. What she is less sure of, is herself. Intricately crafted and emotionally gripping, The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe is the compelling story of one young woman's journey to move beyond the grief and anger that control her and find the inner strength to chart her own course.
