The sequel to Charlene Challenger's Aurora Award-nominated young adult novel, The Voices in Between, begins three years after heroine Adoni first followed Ritter, a piper, to the place known as the In-Between and defied its sinister overlord, Ansgar. Unable to find her way back, Adoni has given up the thought of ever rescuing the children she left behind. When she is finally reunited with Ritter, she coaxes him to unlock the portal, and together they return to the piper colony known as The Welcome. But they're disturbed to discover their once-arresting world has been decimated by the vicious Sylvester and his changeling army. Neither Ritter nor Adoni is prepared to wage war against him. Their only weapon is the violent, devastating voice Adoni left the In-Between with all those years ago, but she soon learns that a weapon is only a weapon if you know how to use it.

"An ambitious and sophisticated fantasy, written with evocative, brooding beauty. Challenger makes words on a page caress the ear like music or jar against the soul with a chilling and suspenseful grip." --Ellen Wu, Canadian Review of Materials
"Urban fantasy with a strongly evoked Canadian setting, that is lyrically composed, and doesn't shy away from difficult outcomes, The Myth in Distance is a satisfying conclusion to the saga of the In Between." --Ellen Wu, CM Magazine
