In the brutally stunning fantasy Permafrost series by Kara Barbieri, a young girl finds herself becoming more monster than human and must uncover dangerous truths about who she is and the place that has become her home.
As the last child in a family of daughters, seventeen-year-old Janneke was raised to be the male heir. While her sisters were becoming wives and mothers, she was taught to hunt, track, and fight. On the day her village was burned to the ground, only Janneke survived.
Now, she is the captive of those determined to bend her will to fully accept the ways of the Permafrost—and sacrifice her very humanity…
“Janneke’s epic journey to overcome past horrors and seize her rightful place in the world is packed with equally gripping action and emotion.”—Booklist (starred review, on White Stag)
