There are lights on the horizon. Electricity. Order. A return to civilisation.

After three years cut off, living by their wits in the bush, Finn and Kas might at last find a life without danger and threat.

But the tracking device beneath Kas’s skin begins to buzz—she can’t ignore that she is a Siley, a slave, and will never be free. And when the search parties arrive, with brutal force, Finn and Kas face a new reality—a world divided by fences, a world where they can’t be together.

But after everything they’ve been through, they’re not about to play by the rules.

Land of Fences is the exciting, action-packed conclusion to Mark Smith’s bestselling trilogy that began with The Road to Winter.
