Burning Kingdoms - Internment Chronicles 2 (Paperback)Lauren DeStefano (author)
- In stock online
Danger descends in the second book of The Internment Chronicles, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Chemical Garden trilogy.
After escaping the city of Internment, Morgan and her fellow fugitives land on the ground to finally learn about the world beneath their floating island home.
The ground is a strange place where water falls from the sky as snow, and people watch moving pictures and visit speakeasies. A place where families can have as many children as they want, bury their dead in vast gardens of bodies, and where Internment is the feature of an amusement park.
It is also a land at war.
Everyone who fled Internment had their own reasons to escape their corrupt haven, but now they're caught under the watchful eye of another ruler who wants to dominate his world. They may have made it to the ground, but have they dragged Internment with them?

Praise for The Chemical Garden series:
A 'harrowing debut ... DeStefano has an observant and occasionally pitiless eye, chronicling the cruelties, mercies, and inconsistencies of her young characters... ' Publisher's Weekly starred review
'Lauren DeStefano crafts an all too believable future. I loved the world, the romance, the writing - exactly the kind of book I've been craving to read' Carrie Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH
'[A] thought-provoking debut, reminiscent of THE HANDMAID'S TALE with a touch of Big Love ... Rhine's fight for freedom against the clock-and the dissecting table-will leave readers eager for the sequel. Give this one to fans of THE HUNGER GAMES trilogy or Ally Condie's MATCHED' Kirkus
