Description



About the Book



A group of survivors, originally trapped together in a superstore by a series of escalating disasters, has split in two. One group heading to Denver airport on a repaired school bus, the other remaining in the Sanctuary trying to rebuild the community they lost. But the world outside is dark and filled with dangerous chemicals that turn people into bloodthirsty monsters.



Book Synopsis



Trapped in a superstore by a series of escalating disasters, including a monster hailstorm and terrifying chemical weapons spill, brothers Dean and Alex learned how to survive and worked together with twelve other kids to build a refuge from the chaos. But then strangers appeared, destroying their fragile peace, and bringing both fresh disaster and a glimmer of hope.

Knowing that the chemical weapons saturating the air outside will turn him into a bloodthirsty rage monster, Dean decides to stay in the safety of the store with Astrid and some of the younger kids. But their sanctuary has already been breached once. . . .

Meanwhile, Alex, determined to find their parents, heads out into the darkness and devastation with Niko and some others in a recently repaired school bus. If they can get to Denver International Airport, they might be evacuated to safety. But the outside world is even worse than they expected. . . .

Monument 14: Sky on Fire is the second installment Emmy Laybourne's thrilling series.

Praise for Monument 14: Sky on Fire:

"A nifty plot that provides unexpected moments of chaos." --The Horn Book

"Pretty darn breathless." --Booklist

"The well-paced plot leads to an ending that provides just enough closure to satisfy and a clear opening for a third book. Libraries that own the original need the sequel. Those without it should consider purchasing both titles." --School Library Journal

"Since reading Monument 14--in one edge-of-my-seat, non-stop read--I've been unable to go into a department store without planning my survival strategy. Paranoia, Aisle 23!" --Eric Walters, author of The Rule of Three
