In The Edge of Everything from Entertainment Weekly veteran Jeff Giles, it’s been a rough year for seventeen-year-old Zoe. She’s still reeling from her father’s shocking death in a caving accident and her neighbors’ mysterious disappearance from their home. Then on a terrifying, subzero, blizzardy night in Montana, she and her brother are brutally attacked in the woods—only to be rescued by a mysterious bounty hunter they call X.

But X is no ordinary bounty hunter. He is from the Lowlands, sent to claim the soul of Zoe’s attacker and others like him. X is forbidden from revealing himself to anyone other than his prey, but he casts aside the Lowlands’ rules for Zoe. As they learn more about their colliding worlds, they begin to question the past, their fate, and their future. But escaping the Lowlands and the ties that bind X might mean the ultimate sacrifice for them both.

Gripping and full of heart, this epic start to a new series will draw you in and the tantalizing secrets revealed will keep you reading until the darkest hours of the night.
