The sequel to the New York Times-bestselling and National Book Award-longlisted Walk on Earth a Stranger. Lee Westfall — a young woman who can sense gold in the world around her — and her friends have staked their claims in California, but the real danger and power of Lee's gift is only just beginning. The second book in Rae Carson's Gold Seer trilogy escalates the romance, the magic, and the action of Lee Westfall's epic story.

After their harrowing journey west to California, Lee Westfall and her eclectic group of steadfast friends have finally found their new home — one rich with gold, thanks to Lee's magical power. However wild the California territory is, Lee has found a place to belong. She may even be tempted to pursue her growing crush on her best friend Jefferson, who hasn't stopped trying to win her heart. But her uncle Hiram hasn't given up his quest to get Lee and her power under his control. When she is kidnapped and forced to work in his mine, Lee sees firsthand the horrors of mining camps and the depths of her uncle's villainy. Yet Lee's magic is growing and changing, and it may be the key to saving everyone and destroying her uncle once and for all. In novels packed with action, romance, and magic, Rae Carson's thorough research and boundless imagination break open an era of American history and continue the journey of a distinctive young heroine. Includes a map and an author's note.
