They came after the Diseray. Some were terrors ripped from our collective imaginations, remnants of every mythology across the world. And some were like nothing anyone had ever dreamed up, even in their worst nightmares.


Long ago, the barriers between our world and the Otherworld were ripped open, and it’s taken centuries to bring back civilization in the wake. Now, the luckiest Cits live in enclosed communities, behind walls that keep them safe from the hideous monsters fighting to break through. Others are not so lucky.

To Joyeaux Charmand, who has been a Hunter in her tight-knit mountain community since she was a child, every Cit without magic deserves her protection from dangerous Othersiders. Then she is called to Apex City, where the best Hunters are kept to protect the most important people.

Joy soon realizes that the city’s powerful leaders care more about luring Cits into a false sense of security than protecting them. More and more monsters are getting through the barriers, and the close calls are becoming too frequent to ignore. Yet the Cits have no sense of how much danger they’re in—to them, Joy and her corps of fellow Hunters are just action stars they watch on TV.

When an act of sabotage against Joy takes an unbearable toll, Joy uncovers a terrifying conspiracy. There is something much worse than the usual monsters infiltrating Apex. And it may be too late to stop them.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Lackey builds this magically post-apocalyptic world briskly… the prose easily balancing the technology of the future with the traditions of the past. Captivating, dynamic, well paced, and thrilling.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Lackey successfully mixes dystopia and fantasy in this series opener…Exciting, entirely entertaining, and sure to please her fans.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This satisfying sci-fi YA novel is set in a fully thought-out future with cultural references woven throughout….The protagonist is a principled, smart, strong girl and is easy to root for. The language can be clunky at times, but the incredible world-building more than makes up for it. Verdict: A perfect choice for Hunger Games fans and readers looking for stories with strong female heroines.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Lackey does a good job of setting up the conflict between the traditional monster-hunting Joy and the vain reality star Hunters of Apex City. There are brief scenes between Joy and the most dangerous of the Othersiders, the Mages, that hint at a much larger story to come in the following books of the series. Fans of Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games series who like a little more magic and fantasy with their dystopia will appreciate this new series.”


  • “Amy Landon brings a measured intensity to her narration of this high-stakes adventure. She guides listeners through Joyeux Charmand’s richly detailed world…[and] clearly conveys the fierce hunter Joyeux’s fascination and unease with Apex City…Landon ensures that each character, particularly Joyeaux’s comrades, is distinct, and that the relationships she develops in the course of her mission are vividly portrayed. The result is a tense, engrossing tale that will keep listeners rapt.”

    " Excellent book. I'm not a critic, just like a good read. The narration was excellent. The book ended abruptly, so you really are kind of pushed to get the next one so there is some type of conclusion. Over all, very, very good. "
