It’s been seventeen years and Gray has never tasted salt. She’s never tasted sugar. She’s never heard the swelling voices of a crowd or felt the heat of bodies in a packed room. She’s been banished from society since birth and merely waits to die in Griseus, the endless moor of dead grass and wind to which her murderous uncle exiled her. But all that is about to change when Gray is unexpectedly ripped from solitude and into the world she never knew: a world that is filled with bustling alleyways, towering citadels, glorious new tastes, and a task so dark it nearly swallows her up. For the first time in her life she is needed, and it’s vital she comply. Knowing nothing of the world, Gray would latch first onto another human soul that can guide her—any other soul. Even if that soul were her captor. Set in a place unlike any other, THE ISOLATED asks its readers which is worse: the captivity of the mind, the body, or the soul?

Ellen Stokes writes fantasy-sprinkled fiction for kids and teens. She was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado and is the oldest of five children. She first became interested in creative writing during sixth grade when her short story on her school district’s standardized test got her perfect marks—the first thing she’d ever excelled in and thoroughly enjoyed academically. From there, she dabbled in things from ballet to sociology until she finally came back to her initial love. THE ISOLATED is her debut novel for young adults. She lives with her family in Iowa.
