The time has come to visit the forbidden island of Allay.

But first Lintang needs to find her captain, and it seems the only way to get to the Winda is to join – then escape – the Vierzan navy. Only then will Captain Shafira set sail for Allay, where the crew of the Winda must uncover what really happened to the country’s missing ruler.

When disaster strikes, and Lintang is separated from her captain again,she and her friends must sneak through the heart of Allay, battle terrifying new mythies and overcome Captain Shafira’s enemies to return to where they belong.

Lintang was left behind once. She won’t let it happen again.

Rhyllis Bignell, ReadPlus

Moss writes with a rich imagination brimming with adventure and characters whose dreams become our own. The Lintang books (and others like them) are timely, bringing to the fore a new array of strong young women who are headstrong, decisive and absolutely unwilling to let others decide their fates for them. Moss’s Lintang will no doubt be one of those leading the charge!
