Escape is impossible. Escape is their only hope.

Set in a land where magic can be terrifying, Chasing the Valley combines the friendship and camaraderie of Ranger's Apprentice with the hardship and survival of The Hunger Games - with spectacular results.

Danika is used to struggling for survival. But when the tyrannous king launches an attack to punish her city - echoing the alchemy bombs that killed Danika's family - she risks her life in a daring escape over the city's walls. Danika joins a crew of desperate refugees who seek Magnetic Valley, a legendary safe haven. But when she accidentally destroys a palace biplane, suddenly Danika Glynn becomes the most wanted fugitive in Taladia.

Pursued by the king's vicious hunters and betrayed by false allies, Danika also grapples with her burgeoning magical abilities. And when she meets the mysterious Lukas, she must balance her feelings against her crew's safety. Chasing the Valley is the first book in an epic trilogy of magic, treachery and survival.

    Comments about Chasing the Valley:

    I could read this book over and over again, and it would still be interesting! Great plot, great characters and I love the genre. I'd say it's a teen fantasy, a survival story with a bit of romance and comedy.
