9780062006165: Across a Star-Swept Sea

From Rampant and Ascendant author Diana Peterfreund comes this thrilling companion to For Darkness Shows the Stars.

Centuries after wars nearly destroyed civilization, Persis Blake's world is once again in the throes of rebellion.

For Persis, her public life is that of a socialite, filled with parties and ball gowns. But while she seems to be a frivolous aristocrat, inside Persis beats the heart of a spy--the same heart that is falling for the enemy, Justen Helo.

Persis's heart belongs to Justen, but before she can tell him the truth, she discovers he has a secret as well--one that could plunge their tropical paradise into another dark age. And Persis realizes she's not just risking her heart, she's risking the world she's sworn to protect.

Across a Star-Swept Sea is a romantic, science-fictional reimagining of the classic The Scarlet Pimpernel.

Book Description Balzer + Bray. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 464 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.7in. x 1.6in.Centuries after wars nearly destroyed civilization, the two islands of New Pacifica stand alone, a terraformed paradise where even the Reduction--the devastating brain disorder that sparked the wars--is a distant memory. Yet on the isle of Galatea, an uprising against the ruling aristocrats has turned deadly. The revolutionaries weapon is a drug that damages their enemies brains, and the only hope is rescue by a mysterious spy known as the Wild Poppy. On the neighboring island of Albion, no one suspects that the Wild Poppy is actually famously frivolous aristocrat Persis Blake. The teenager uses her shallow, socialite trappings to hide her true purpose: her gossipy flutternotes are encrypted plans, her pampered sea mink is genetically engineered for spying, and her well-publicized new romance with handsome Galatean medic Justen Helo. . . is her most dangerous mission ever. Though Persis is falling for Justen, she cant risk showing him her true self, especially once she learns hes hiding far more than simply his disenchantment with his countrys revolution and his undeniable attraction to the silly socialite hes pretending to love. His darkest secret could plunge both islands into a new dark age, and Persis realizes that when it comes to Justen Helo, shes not only risking her heart, shes risking the world shes sworn to protect. In this thrilling adventure inspired byThe Scarlet Pimpernel, Diana Peterfreund creates an exquisitely rendered world where nothing is as it seems and two teens with very different pasts fight for a future only they dare to imagine. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9780062006165
