A stunning reimagining of Homer’s Odyssey set in post-Apocalyptic Los Angeles, written by a master storyteller.
Her life by the sea in ruins, Pen has lost everything in the Earth Shaker that all but destroyed the city of Los Angeles. She sets out into the wasteland to search for her family, her journey guided by a tattered copy of Homer’s Odyssey. Soon she begins to realize her own abilities and strength as she faces false promises of safety, the cloned giants who feast on humans, and a madman who wishes her dead. On her voyage, Pen learns to tell stories that reflect her strange visions, while she and her fellow survivors navigate the dangers that lie in wait. In her signature style, Francesca Lia Block has created a world that is beautiful in its destruction and as frightening as it is lovely. At the helm is Pen, a strong heroine who holds hope and love in her hands and refuses to be defeated.

A Homeric Dystoperiffic Dreamland
- Erin - Audible "Nothing I love more than a well-rounded character and intense plot."
Wow, what a disappointment
Young preteens, but even they are too smart for this convoluted tale.
She does a good job with bad story line and dumb partial characters.
Everything, this book is so disjointed it ends up being a waste of time.
Francesca Lia Block, you should know better, terrible.
