The Last Lie

(The second book in the List series)
A novel by

In this powerful conclusion to The List, Letta wields the power of words to save the world.

The city of Ark is no longer safe. Before the rebellion, everyone could only speak List, a language of just 500 words. But when Letta became the Wordsmith, the keeper of all the words that have ever existed, she learned that being able to express yourself is what makes us human.

And now, the new ruler has wicked plans to eliminate language once and for all: If babies never hear a single word, they will never learn to speak.

Letta and the other rebels must find a way to defeat the evil for good before they lose the very thing that will set them free.
