The Conquered Earth series, a sci-fi tour de force set in an alien-invaded postapocalyptic world, returns as the children forge deeper into dangerous lands in search of the Severed Tower.

Holt, Mira, and Max have fled Midnight City with Zoey after watching her repel an entire Assembly army. Zoey’s powers are unlocked, but who and what she is remains a mystery. All she knows is that she must reach the Severed Tower, an infamous spot in the middle of the world’s most dangerous landscape: the Strange Lands, a place where the laws of physics have completely broken down. But the closer they get to the tower, the more precarious things become.

The Assembly has pursued Zoey into the Strange Lands, as has a new group, whose agenda seems to differ from the rest. To make matters worse, the group hunting Holt is there, led by a dangerous and beautiful pirate named Ravan. So is Mira’s first love, Benjamin Aubertine, whose singular ambition to reach the Tower threatens to get them all killed.

Then there’s the Strange Lands themselves. They have inexplicably begun to grow, spreading outward, becoming more powerful. Somehow, it all seems tied to Zoey herself, and the closer she gets to the Tower, the weaker she becomes.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Mitchell’s second in his young adult trilogy is a masterful mix of post-apocalyptic, dystopian science fiction with just a hint of steampunk. His narrative is edge-of-your-seat and nail-bitingly thrilling, his prose concise and visual, his battles epic, his characters memorable, his evildoers nightmarishly atrocious and his stars utterly unforgettable.”

  • “The mechanisms of the artifacts created in the Strange Lands are clearer than in the series opener, and the science-fantasy explanation of the tower itself is good fun, as is the setup for book three in a much-changed world.”
