Interest Age Teen Reading Age 8 - In a Nutshell: danger deceit determination

Catherine Fisher’s dystopian vision of a frozen world is beautiful, intriguing and makes for gripping reading. The human survivors of a devastating natural disaster live in isolated and strictly-governed communities. Caz and Will have already defied the odds escaping the ruins of a derelict city to reach the relative safety of a Settlement and Caz has never given up hope that her father too is still alive. With loyal Will at her side she sets off to find him, in defiance of the Settlement’s rulers. When they reach the place he was last seen, the white darkness hides terrifying dangers. End-of-the-world stories don’t come more exciting than this. ~ Andrea Reece

The Crystal Stair Synopsis

Life in the Settlement is not as perfect as Caz and Will had hoped - they live apart in the Boys' and Girls' Towers and rarely see each other. Searching for her father, Caz is told that he never arrived at the Settlement. But then she finds his name on a secret list of a missing Search and Rescue team that set out to investigate a mysterious signal and never came back. She can't rest until she finds out what's happened to him. Even though Will is convinced it's too dangerous. Even though it means leaving and heading back out onto the endless ice.

A thrilling tale of danger, friendship and secrets from Incarceron bestseller Catherine Fisher. Set against an icy post-apocalyptic world, this nail-biting adventure is a captivating sequel to 2015's At the World's End.

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+
