Escape from the Badlands
Author(s): Carrie Jones
Time Stopper Annie's newfound home, the enchanted town Aurora, is in danger. The vicious Raiff will stop at nothing to steal the town's magic, and Annie is the only one who can defeat him--even though it's prophesied that she'll “fall with evil.”
Alongside her loyal band of friends Eva, Bloom, SalGoud, and Jamie, who still isn't quite sure whether he's a troll or not, Annie journeys deep into the Raiff's realm, the Badlands. The group will face everything from ruthless monsters to their own deepest fears. Can Annie find the courage to confront the Raiff and save everyone, even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice?
