Overview

Love, fate, and power collide in this new series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike!

Tavia Michaels is the sole survivor of the plane crash that killed her parents. When she starts to see strange visions of a boy she’s never spoken with in real life, she begins to suspect that there’s much about her past that she isn’t being told. Tavia will soon to discover that she’s an Earthbound—someone with the ability to create matter out of nothing—and that she alone holds the key to stopping the Reduciata, an evil society that manipulates global events for its own shadowy purposes. Tavia will ultimately have to make a choice: to come into her powers and save the world from the evil Reduciata or to choose free will and a love of her own.

#1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike has created a heart-stopping romance built on a love triangle like you’ve never seen before and filled with epic stakes and a centuries-long conspiracy. Give it to fans of Nightshade and Fallen.

Praise

Praise for Earthbound:

“[A] riveting page-turner. . . . With carefully crafted characters and plot, readers will be unable to sort the good guys from the bad. Sure to satisfy romantics, mystery fans, fantasy aficionados, and thrill seekers alike.”—Booklist

“Pike’s . . . solid writing, particularly in her descriptions, will have readers hooked. Tavia’s low-tech revelation via ChapStick works better than any superbattle to convey what’s at stake in her life and choices.”—Publishers Weekly

“It’s usually a good sign when I read the first 30 pages of a book one day and devour the following 300 pages the next. Such was the case with Earthbound, Aprilynne Pike’s superb new young adult novel. It’s a complicated, intoxicating, and surprising ride that I literally couldn’t put down until I read it all.”—Christian Science Monitor

“[A] promising start to a new series that offers history, romance, and action.”—Kirkus Reviews

“The premise of Earthbound is enough to give even the most jaded of readers the shivers.”—Romantic Times

“Aprilynne Pike’s talent just continues to bloom and I am almost afraid to see how awesome her next book will be.”—Carrie Jones, bestselling author of Need and Captivate

“. . . fascinating, rich, and romantic, and weaves a great new tapestry of thrilling fantasy.”—isa McMann, bestselling author of the Wake trilogy

“The greatest part: the WINGS series reaches the perfect ending. The worst part: it has to end!”—Claudia Gray, New York Times bestselling author of the Evernight series

“Mixing a little bit of Harry Potter and a lot of Twilight, Pike has hit on a winning combination. Yet it is her own graceful take on life inside Avalon that adds a shimmering patina sure to enthrall readers.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Pike’s clever and innovative way of reinventing fairy tales and myths to make them her own is wonderful. . . . [The] story is rich in vivid details, action, adventure, and romance.”—Romantic Times (top pick)
