The gripping sequel to Rich Larson's beautiful and gut-wrenching debut Annex about two outsiders surviving, fighting back, and finding family at the end of the world.
The invasion is over, but not all the aliens are gone. As the outside world learns what happened to their city, Violet and Bo struggle to keep Gloom hidden from prying eyes.
But Gloom may be the key to unlocking the mysteries behind the invaders and their technology. And those in power will stop at nothing until Gloom and his friends are captured and confined to a dissecting table... or dead.
