The Clearing by Shalini Boland

Sequel to YA dystopian thriller OUTSIDE


In the ravaged future, children are disappearing.

Riley lives safely behind her Perimeter Fence, but soon she’ll have to confront the terrible truth of what’s happening outside. An old enemy is approaching. Threatening to extinguish her way of life.  To save herself, Riley must fight to save another. She must put herself in the last place she ever wanted to be. 

This is the terrifying sequel to OUTSIDE


‘Fine. I’m fine.’ But I wasn’t fine. I don’t think any of us were. What were we supposed to do against an army of thousands? I didn’t want to lose everything. I didn’t want Grey to make us live a half-life worshipping a god of his creation. And I didn’t want to die. If he was coming for us, then I needed to be strong. We would need to fight him. It was the only way we would keep our freedom.  Had I always known this day was coming? Had it been waiting for us all this time? We thought we’d been so clever, that we had tamed the world again, or at least our small corner of it. We thought we’d kept the chaos out and left the rest of the world to deal with it. But the chaos was coming to find us. It was seeking us out again. Had this day been inevitable all along?

 What is being said on Amazon :

“This is a fast paced book with lots of action and quite a few tear-jerking moments. Riley is a great character, strong and fierce.”

“…a scary and heartfelt tale…”

“…the darkly sinister “The Voice of the Father” character is genius…”

“…would be a great movie!”

“The ending to the book has an amazing twist that will leave you hanging and hungry for more!!!!”
