Blind the Eyes
When the cost of failure is death, disobedience isn’t an option.
In a drowned city where hope kills and dreams are deadly, all haunted outcast Cole wants is to be the perfect Tower drone.
A year ago, she survived an encounter with the nightmarish Mara, who devoured her disobedience and left a troublemaking ghost behind as a reminder of her fate should they return. She’s finally on the verge of erasing her failure when a charismatic rebel derails her plans and exposes the dark secret at the heart of her drowned homeland.
With the dead piling up at every turn, Cole will have to untangle the lies and choose between a charming but dangerous revolutionary, holy Tower regulation, the whispers of a spectre from her past, or the call of the child within.
The race is on to take back her choices and stop the dying before the nightmares eat her alive.
A not-quite-alive girl and her not-quite-dead ghost discover trusted authorities lie, allies have their own agendas and even the monsters wear masks in a post-apocalyptic YA dark fantasy suitable for ages 14 and up. Perfect for those who love:
- ghosts & creatures of myth
- deeply unreliable narrators
- prickly loners
- devious & dazzling revolutionaries
- repressive dystopian regimes & glittering gothic excess
- girls finding their voices & taking back their choices
- all the gore
