The last mile is the longest

In the final book in the acclaimed Lithia Trilogy, Kat has new losses to mourn but also new reasons to live. On the brink of new beginnings, she is back together with Roman, their relationship deepening more and more even as she wonders whether she may still harbor feelings for Alex. Yet Kat finds it difficult to focus on such things as college and romance, with terror still haunting the hills of Lithia and threatening the entire town. As a series of earthquakes baffle scientists and put residents on edge, it seems that something more dangerous may be looming in Lithia's future.

Trying to balance a busy life while keeping Lithia safe isn't easy-and soon Kat realizes that nothing is a higher priority than saving her hometown, along with its abundance of land and animals, from devastation. The only problem is that she can't find a way to do this without leaving Lithia forever-or risking her own life and the lives of those she loves. And her future with Roman appears as unsteady as the ground under her feet. In a novel that weaves together stories of love, the environment, and Shakespeare, the natural and supernatural worlds collide in this stunning conclusion to the Lithia Trilogy.
