The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the epic Year One returns with a new tale of terror and magic in a brand new world.They look like an everyday family living an ordinary life. But beyond the edges of this peaceful farm, unimaginable forces of light and dark have been unleashed.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.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.

    If i could give this more than 5 stars I would! I had the opportunity to read an advanced reader copy of this book. This is book 2 of the Chronicles of the One. (If you didn't read the first book, you should do that before reading this one.) The story continues and gets darker, much more intense. As Fallon begins training for leadership and battle, she grows into a powerful young woman who knows what she must do to save the people she loves. Many parts of the story had me holding my breath, feel If i could give this more than 5 stars I would! I had the opportunity to read an advanced reader copy of this book.

    This is the second in a trilogy, and I felt like it was a placeholder. This can happen in some trilogies, where the book just does not move the story forward. The book loses its momentum. The only real excitement was in the last chapter of the book. We had great character development into Fallon –the One; however, I missed some of the great voices from the first book.

    This book follows the childhood of Fallon, who apparently is the One who is going to save the world. It felt a bit more like a classic Nora Roberts book than the first one did. I really enjoyed it, and am looking forward to book 3!
