'Nicky Singer has carved a world from granite and ash.

Fantastic and terrifying.' Eoin Colfer

Mhairi owns only two things:

a gun with no bullets

and her identity papers.

The world is a shell of what it once was.

Mhairi must prove herself worthy of existence

at every turn, at every border checkpoint.

And if she is going to survive, her instincts will become her most valuable weapon.

But then she meets a young boy with no voice at all,

and finds herself risking everything to take him to safety...

An extraordinary story about the power of small kindnesses to change everything.
