Among those onboard is Ulysses Quicksilver, dandy adventurer and hero of Magna Britannia, enjoying a well-deserved sojourn after the traumatic events of Queen Victoria's 160th jubilee celebrations. But only days out from the undersea city of Pacifica disaster strikes. A brutal murder is committed and then an act of sabotage sends the Neptune plunging into the abyssal depths. Trapped at the bottom of the sea, for the survivors, their problems are only just beginning. Far below a decades' old secret awaits them. The Leviathan has awoken. Rising from the abyss it hungers and when it hunts none shall escape its primeval fury!

Lily Proctor has come a long way from the weak, sickly girl she used to be. She has gained power as a witch and a leader, found her way home, chosen to face battle again, and (after losing her first love and being betrayed by her new love) she has learned more about loss and grief than she ever wanted to know. Thrust once again into a society different from anything they have ever seen, Lily and her coven are determined to find answers—to find a new path to victory, a way to defeat the monstrous Woven without resorting to nuclear weapons or becoming a tyrannical mass murderer like her alternate self, Lillian. But sometimes winning requires sacrifices . . . and when the only clear path to victory lies at Lillian's side, what price will Lily be willing to pay? Internationally bestselling author Josephine Angelini takes us on another emotionally wrenching thrill ride in the stunning conclusion to her Worldwalker Trilogy.

Seit ein mysteröses 'Ereignis' vor mehr als dreißig Jahren das Gebiet erschütterte, ist Area X von einer unsichtbaren Grenze umgeben. Niemand weiß genau, was dahinter geschieht, aber es gibt Gerüchte von einer sich verändernden und die Reste der menschlichen Zivilisation überwuchernden Natur, einer Natur, die ebenso makellos und bezaubernd wie verstörend und bedrohlich ist. Zuständig für das Gebiet ist eine geheime Regierungsorganisation, die sich 'Southern Reach' nennt und den Auftrag hat, herauszufinden, was hinter der Grenze geschieht. Aber keine der Expeditionen, die 'Southern Reach' in das Gebiet entsandte, um Erklärungen für das Unerklärbare zu finden, hatte bisher Erfolg. Die meisten der Expeditionen endeten in Katastrophen, bei denen letztlich alle Mitglieder ums Leben kamen, und die Zeit, um Antworten zu finden, wird knapp, denn Area X scheint sich immer schneller auszudehnen. Es ist Winter, und eine weitere Expedition übertritt die Grenze zu Area X. Während sie, auf der Suche nach einem verschollenen Mitglied einer früheren Expedition, tiefer ins Unbekannte vordringt und mit neuen Herausforderungen konfrontiert wird, nimmt die Bedrohung der Außenwelt durch Area X immer beängstigendere Ausmaße an. Die Geheimnisse von Area X mögen zwar gelüftet worden sein, doch ihre Implikationen und Konsequenzen sind abgrundtief erschreckend.
