After surviving the Hunger Games-like Testing, Eva becomes the Aerie's first female Archon. The second installment of the Books of Eva continue the harrowing struggle between past and present, Aerie and Boundary.
Heather Terrell worked as a commercial litigator in New York City for over ten years, but she has always been obsessed with myth, lore, and the gap between history and the truth. This interest has led to several loosely factual historical novels (The Chrysalis, The Map Thief, Brigid of Kildare) and the pure-lore Fallen Angel series. Boundary is the companion to Relic and the second installment of The Books of Eva. She lives in Pittsburgh with her family. Visit her online at www.heatherterrell.com.
Praise for Boundary
"The 'Eva' [series] evokes similarities to milestone end-of-the-world tales such as Sheri Tepper's mind-bending The Gate to Women's Country and S. M. Stirling's very satisfying series, The Change. They all immerse readers in an otherworldly environment where the usual social rules are upended in hard-to-survive ways."
"Terrell has created a unique dystopian novel set in the future, but where the people of the New North live by almost medieval rules and standards. Eva, ever the rule-following young maiden, is struggling with learning the truth about the past and how it fits into her and her people's future."
Praise for Relic
"Heather Terrell excavates a richly realized and adventurous world from the iced-over wreck of our own."
--William Alexander, New York Times bestselling author and National Book Award winner
"Fans of The Hunger Games will devour this book."
--School Library Journal
"With threads from The Hunger Games, The Giver, and other dystopian novels, Terrell spins her own story, which has plenty of adventure, some unanswered questions, and a dash of romance . . . The way relics--iPhones, guns, even makeup--affect the story adds an ironic touch."
"Part post-apocalyptic fiction and part high fantasy, Relic is the beginning of a trilogy that is written artfully and with a voice you will not soon forget. Delicately weaving in elements of Inuit culture as well as elements you might find in Game of Thrones, Heather Terrell creates a world that is as intricate as it is icy. The intrigue and mystery make it a page-turner, and the rich and complex characters make it hard to forget. I cannot wait for the sequel!"
--E. Kristen Anderson, Editor of Dear Teen Me
"Technology is a fragile thing and another Dark Age could be closer than you think . . . the world built in Relic is unique and has a rich allegorical quality."
--Pittsburgh Post Gazette
