But beyond the edges of this peaceful farm, unimaginable forces of light and dark have been unleashed.</p><p>Fallon Swift, approaching her thirteenth birthday, barely knows the world that existed before--the city where her parents lived, now in ruins and reclaimed by nature since the Doom sickened and killed billions. Traveling anywhere is a danger, as vicious gangs of Raiders and fanatics called Purity Warriors search for their next victim. Those like Fallon, in possession of gifts, are hunted--and the time is coming when her true nature, her identity as The One, can no longer be hidden.</p><p>In a mysterious shelter in the forest, her training is about to begin under the guidance of Mallick, whose skills have been honed over centuries. She will learn the old ways of healing; study and spar; encounter faeries and elves and shifters; and find powers within herself she never imagined. And when the time is right, she will take up the sword, and fight. For until she grows into the woman she was born to be, the world outside will never be whole again.</p>

  Booklist Review

Ever since the virus Doom decimated most of the world's population more than a decade ago, the world has been waiting for someone to stop the madness. Now it seems fate has chosen Fallon Swift as its savior. On her thirteenth birthday, Fallon must leave her family her stepfather, Simon; her mother, Lana; and her stepbrothers behind and train with sorcerer Mallick to become The One: the person whose magical gifts can unite the forces of good left in the world to defeat the powers of darkness. So, no pressure on Fallon! With book two in her The One trilogy, following Year One (2017), Roberts successfully marshals her flair for crafting compelling characters and her skill at imaginative world building, on both a micro domestic scale and a macro dystopian global scale, to create a spellbinding story that will definitely delight her longtime fans as well as pique the interest of fantasy readers, who will want to see what she brings to their genre's literary table as she continues this exciting and relevant series. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: As always with Roberts, a massive print run, major marketing campaign, and enormous readership mean that no one needs otherworldly powers to predict that stocking this sure best-seller in multiples is the way to go.--John Charles Copyright 2018 Booklist
