Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. This movie tie-in edition features cover art from the movie andexclusive Q&A with members of the cast, including Taylor Swift, Brenton Thwaites and Cameron Monaghan.
