A haunting—yet hopeful—new novel from Kristen Simmons, the author of the popular Article 5 trilogy

Once there was a time when men and women lived as equals, when female babies were valued, and women could belong only to themselves. But that was ten generations ago. Now women are property—to be sold, owned, and bred—while a strict census keeps their numbers manageable and under control. The best any girl can hope for is to end up as a man’s forever wife, but most are simply sold and resold until they’re all used up.

Only in the wilderness, away from the city, can true freedom be found. Aya has spent her entire life in the mountains, looking out for her family and hiding from the world—until the day the Trackers finally catch her.

Stolen from her home and being groomed for auction, Aya is desperate to escape her fate and return to her family. But her only allies are a loyal wolf she’s raised from a pup and a strange mute boy who may be her best hope for freedom … if she can truly trust him.

Quotes & Awards

  • The Glass Arrow by Kristen Simmons plunges readers into a heart-wrenching and wholly startling new world. Aya’s story is terrifying in the best possible way, and left me shuddering over the painful awareness of humanity’s darkest capability, and yet not losing sight of its greatest potential. Simmons portrays a stunning heroine of strength and resilience that captivated me until the very last page.”

    Christina Farley, author of the YA bestseller Gilded

  • “Fully imagined and richly written, The Glass Arrow seamlessly blends the best of adventure and romance with characters you will root for. I was transported…A dark tale shot through with hope and the idea that sacrifice and love can conquer all. I couldn’t put it down.”

    Amy Christine Parker, author of Gated and Astray

  • The Glass Arrow is an intense and disturbing read that is impossible to put down. From the rush of the first chase scene to the emotional conclusion, Aya is a fearless heroine that you can’t help falling in love with. I stayed up way too late completely enthralled, chilled and ultimately satisfied by the frightening world Simmons created. Now where is book two? I need it right now!”

    Ellen Oh, author of Prophecy
