    Zoe, 17, and her family live in the snowbound Montana wilderness in fear of the Lowlands, a place from which enslaved bounty hunters enter our world to collect the souls of wrongdoers. Still reeling from their father's disappearance, Zoe and her brother are rescued in a blizzard by a mysterious young bounty hunter Zoe calls X. Raised in the Lowlands, X has never had a name, much less anything resembling a normal life, but when he and Zoe meet, they fall hard in love for each other. Readers are likely to fall hard for Zoe's family, whose fierce independence, stubborn refusal to accept injustice, and unconditional love for one another pulls them through multiple tragedies. Giles beautifully captures the breathless, visceral, and instant attraction between Zoe and X, as well as Zoe's disappointment and anger when she learns what has actually become of her father. This action-packed romance with surprisingly dimensional characters offers no easy answers to myriad difficult questions, making it a rich and satisfying read on multiple levels.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: This book's big-time push includes blurbs by the likes of Peter Jackson, two author tours, and preorder promo gifts.

Author Notes

Jeff Giles grew up in Cohasset, Massachusetts. Most recently, he was the deputy managing editor of Entertainment Weekly, where he oversaw all coverage of movies and books, including the magazine's championing of YA fiction. Jeff has written for Rolling Stone and The New York Times Books Review. He also coauthored The Terrorist's Son, a nonfiction book that won an Alex Award from the American Library Association and has since been translated into more than a dozen languages. While reporting on the Lord of the Rings movies for Newsweek, Jeff was invited to be an extra in The Return of the King. He played a Rohan soldier, and--because he didn't have a beard or mustache--they glued yak hair to his face. Jeff lives with his family in Montana.
