In the icy, monster-plagued world of the Frost, one wrong move and a person might end up dead—and Lia Weaver knows this better than anyone. After monsters kill her parents, she must keep the family farm running despite the freezing weather and threat of monster attacks, or risk losing her siblings to reassignment by the village Elders. With dangers on all sides and treachery just one wrong step away, she can’t afford to let her emotions lead her astray. So when her sister finds a fugitive bleeding to death in the forest, a young man from beyond the Frost named Gabe, Lia surprises herself and does the unthinkable.
She saves his life.
Giving shelter to the fugitive could get her in serious trouble. The Elders have always described the advanced society of people beyond the Frost, the “Farthers,” as ruthless and cruel, and her village has nothing to do with them. But Lia is startled to find that Gabe is empathetic and intelligent…and handsome. She might even be falling in love with him.
But time is running out. The monsters from the forest circle her farm at night. The village leader is starting to ask questions. Farther soldiers are searching for Gabe. Lia must locate a secret organization called the Thorns to help Gabe escape to safety, but each move she makes puts her in greater danger. Is compassion—and love—worth the risk?

1. What was your first thought when you saw Lia?
Confusion. I was half-dead with cold and pain, and her face was blurry. I remember her voice. I remember the way she was so strong and calm, as if she wasn’t afraid.
2. What do you think is the most untrue thing said about the Farthers?
That we are all bad. The soldiers are cruel, yes, but my people are oppressed by them too. We aren’t monsters. We’re people, too.
3. If you could change one thing what would it be?
I would not be a fugitive running for my life.
4. If you could have one wish come true, what would you wish?
That I could be with my family again and know they are safe.
5. What is something people don’t know about you that they might be surprised to know?
I’m not a violent person, despite what the people in the Frost seem to think about all Farthers. I’ve never hurt anyone in my life before.
