"This generation's Le Guin." --Andrew Sean Greer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Less

Charlie Jane Anders, the nationally bestselling author of All the Birds in the Sky delivers a brilliant new novel set in a hauntingly strange future with #10 LA Times bestseller The City in the Middle of the Night.

"If you control our sleep, then you can own our dreams... And from there, it's easy to control our entire lives."


Humanity clings to life on January--a planet divided between permanently frozen darkness on one side, and blazing endless sunshine on the other. Two cities, built long-ago in the meager temperate zone, serve as the last bastions of civilization.

Life inside the cities is just as dangerous as the uninhabitable wastelands outside--as Sophie, a young student from the wrong side of the city, comes to realize.

Exiled into the night after a failed revolution, Sophie's life is saved by the enigmatic beasts that live in the dark, and so vows to stay hidden from the world, hoping she can heal.

But fate has other plans--and Sophie's ensuing odyssey and the ragtag family she finds will change the entire world.
