Julie Bertagna brings this eloquent trilogy to a hugely satisfying close that began with Exodus and continued in Zenith. Now living safely at the highest point of the world Lily feels trapped by the limitations of her horizons. Meanwhile, Fox’s mind is set on making the world whole even if it takes a war to achieve it. The weaving together of the two stories makes Aurora a thrilling adventure propelled by a powerful romance.


Aurora by Julie Bertagna

A novel of extraordinary imaginative vision and emotional power - Aurora is the eagerly anticipated conclusion to the critically acclaimed, bestselling Exodus and Zenith.

Much of Earth is underwater - in the high mountains at the top of the world Lily survives with her mother and her people ...but she feels trapped. Elsewhere, beneath the exclusive sky-cities that tower above the waves, Fox has been waiting too. But when Fox and Lily meet on a virtual plane, they realize the time has come to act. The world must be made whole again, even if it means losing each other! The third and final installment in the brilliantly imagined, hugely romantic and poetically told trilogy set in a frighteningly realistic future.
