A Hero for Wondla
Signed by New York Times bestselling author/artist Tony Diterlizzi
Eva’s dream is about to come true. She has been found by a young pilot and he has promised to take her to New Attica, a city filled with other human beings. Eva is certain that this is the start of a wonderful new life for her and her good friend, the Caerulean alien, Rovender. But nothing seems to go the way she expects. She meets many young people like herself - including a relative she didn’t even know she had - and uncovers answers about the Sanctuaries and the history of what happened to the Earth, but these new answers bring with them new questions. As Eva continues to seek answers, she finds that not all is as perfect as it
seems. The balance of life is once again being threatened. Is New Attica a haven? Or a danger?

Eight years after Graceling, Bitterblue is now queen of Monsea. But the influence of her father, a violent psychopath with mind-altering abilities, lives on. Her advisors, who have run things since Leck died, believe in a forward-thinking plan: Pardon all who committed terrible acts under Leck’s reign, and forget anything bad ever happened. But when Bitterblue begins sneaking outside the castle—disguised and alone—to walk the streets of her own city, she starts realizing that the kingdom has been under the thirty-five-year spell of a madman, and the only way to move forward is to revisit the past.
