For fans of Alice in Wonderland, Shadow of the Wind and booklovers everywhere, a literary thriller and a love story set in a world threatened by the disappearance of language.
Words are under threat. It's time to fights back...
Imagine a world without words. A world in which books, libraries and newspapers are things of the past. A world where personal devices provide all you could want or need.
Anana Johnson and her father, Doug, are hard at work on the final edition that will ever be printed of the English Dictionary. But one evening, Doug disappears and Anana unearths a single written clue: ALICE.
In the battle to save her father, Anana discovers secret societies, dark incinerator rooms and underground passages. Above all, she finds a world that faces ruin from the dark side of technology.
