Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books

The third in a series which portrays a future world devastated by global warming, Aurora introduces us to  the headstrong Lily, Mara's daughter, who sets out in search of Fox, her birth father, and in doing so, discovers lands and peoples they had thought completely destroyed.

Bertagna's writing is lyrical and poetic, and this sometimes violent fantasy holds particular power for its examination of family, love, loyalty and friendship even in adversity. However, although Aurora can be read as a stand-alone novel, it gains through a knowledge of the previous books in the series.
