In Rilka's village, it isn't safe to go out after dark. That's when the beguilers drift through the streets, tempting people to follow them. Everyone knows their power-they hypnotize their victims and ultimately drive them to their death. When Rilka decides to capture a beguiler, her family and friends mourn her as though she is already dead. In the course of her lonely, danger-filled journey, Rilka struggles to keep her strength and her sanity. She is ultimately rewarded with knowledge that will change life in the village forever. Rilka's fierce independence will resonate with teens as they become mesmerized by this utterly unique quest story. Kate Thompson is the author of the Switchers series.
