Description of this Book

A compelling dystopian novel and winner of the 2010 New Zealand Post Childrens Book Awards: Young Adult Fiction. Maryam refused to play by The Rules, and now theyre out to get her blood The people of Onew?re, a small island in the Pacific, know that they are specialchosen by the great Apostles of the Lamb to survive the deadly Tribulation that consumed the Earth. When Maryam crosses from child to woman, she must leave everything she has ever known and make a Crossing of another kind. But life inside the Holy City is not as she had dreamed, and she is faced with the unthinkable: obey the Apostles and very likely die, or turn her back on every belief she once held dear.

A trilogy that lives up to the promise demonstrated here might well be on the way to becoming a classic. <br>-Martin Turner, CMIS Evaluation<br><br> A post apocalyptic thriller of such force and originality that it deserves a much wider audience. <br>-Booktopia SF & Fantasy September Buzz
