As a lethal plague sweeps through the land, Ani Mells is shocked when she is unexpectedly captured by the governor’s wardens and forced to submit to a test for the deadly Scourge. She is even more surprised when the test results come back positive, and she is sent to Attic Island, a former prison turned refuge—and quarantine colony—for the ill. The Scourge’s victims, Ani now among them, can only expect to live out short, painful lives there.
However, Ani quickly discovers that she doesn’t know the
whole truth about the Scourge or the Colony. She’s been caught in a
devious plot, and, with the help of her best friend, Weevil, Ani means
to uncover just what is actually going on. But will she and Weevil
survive the Scourge—and the gorvernor’s wardens—long enough to make
their escape and expose the cruel plan?
"Few things were worth the risk to my life, but the juicy vine fruit was one of them."
I listened to this book and couldn't stop! Another great book from Jennifer Nielsen!
