Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, young adult

The haunting follow-up novel to LOVE IN THE TIME OF GLOBAL WARMING.

Pen has lost her parents. She’s lost her eye. But she has fought Kronen; she has won back her fragile friends and her beloved brother. When a foreboding ship appears in the harbor across from their home, they all start having strange visions of destruction and violence. In a trance, they head for the ship, and their new battles begin — battles that will test their love for one another. Pen thought she had been through trials in the past but she has never faced this kind of danger. Or temptation.

This companion to Love in the Time of Global Warming follows Pen as she searches for love among the ruins, this time using Virgil’s epic Aeneid as her guide. A powerful and stunning book filled with Francesca Lia Block’s beautiful language and inspiring characters.
