Description from the publisher:
When Anna becomes separated from Emry, she has no other choice but to explore the foreign world of Evadere on her own. She soon discovers that it is tainted from a stirring turmoil among the people.
Evadere has been a place of respite and escape from the difficulties of Earth for Anna and Emry, but alone on Evadere, Anna is pulled into the stirrings of an uprising between the Scaves and the ones who force them to live as scavengers. Anna is determined not to let the fear and attempts on her life stop her from finding her way back to Emry.
But Anna is shocked when she discovers who Emry really is, the forces of evil supporting him, and how the temptations in paradise have been misleading them both.
It will take all the strength and determination Anna and Emry possess to survive Evadere, even as the killing starts …
This is the second book in the Strange in Skin series. You definitely need to read these in order.
Anna wakes up on the beach in Evadere and Emry isn't there. Alone and afraid in a foreign world, she faces the frightening inhabitants in her adventures to reach the royal castle. Only there are the people with the power to return her to Earth and Emry. Getting to the castle turns out to be only half of the harrowing adventure Anna will face.
I am truly enjoying this young adult series. Ms. Zook has created a fantastic planet filled with exceptional beings, some with powers and some without. Like the Sneetches of Dr. Seuss, the Contributors, those with powers, dismiss the value of the Scaves, those without powers and left to be scavengers for the basics of living. I look forward to finding out if the Contributors and the Scaves learn the lessons of the Sneetches.
