Her recent title, The Scourge, is a thrilling standalone adventure. This is a Storyfort Event
About the book: Ani is shocked when she is unexpectedly captured by the governor’s wardens and forced to submit to a test for the deadly Scourge. She is even more surprised when the test results come back positive, and she is sent to Attic Island, a former prison turned refuge and quarantine colony for the ill. The Scourge’s victims—Ani now among them—can only expect to live out short, painful lives there. Ani quickly discovers that she doesn’t know the whole truth about the Scourge or the Colony—she’s been caught in a devious plot. With the help of her best friend, Weevil, Ani means to uncover what is actually happening. But will she and Weevil survive long enough to do so?
“Nielsen’s polished fantasy smoothly combines medieval elements
with hints of mystery and romance.”
— Publishers Weekly
“Feisty Ani, a likable character who is thoughtful and strong,
drives the story forward and keeps readers wanting to know more.”
— School Library Journal
