“Root is…different. Though raised in a fearful society that reveres conformity, she’s irreverent, outspoken, and deeply curious. Her congenital blindness sets her even further apart.
Centuries after the Reckoning, a genetic engineering disaster that nearly extinguished the human race, terrifying mutations are afflicting people as they haven’t in generations. When Root hears a voice that no one else can hear, she flees into the wilderness. Outcast and hunted, she must confront a dire threat to her people–and unravel the mystery of who she really is.”
