This is the exciting sequel to Riding Tycho and the story begins as Demetria is rescued from the sea having been sun-scorched and dangerously dehydrated during her escape from High Island. But the life ahead is by no means easy. Demetria soon discovers that those from High Island are not welcomed and new horrors lie ahead of her. Demetria also discovers what really matters to her. Like its predecessor, Voyager is set in a dark world but Demetria’s powerful personality and her belief in the importance of finding out the truth infuses both it and its predecessor with hope. (13+)

Synopsis

Voyager by Jan Mark

Having risked everything to escape her oppressive life on High Island, Demetria hopes she is finally free. As she learns about the political situation, about those who go 'missing' and those forced into exile, she begins to understand that there are more important things to fight for than her own freedom.
