For most of her life, Lirael has been training to kill—and replace—a duplicate version of herself on a parallel Earth. She is the perfect sleeper-soldier. But she's beginning to suspect she is not a good person. Fans of eerily futuristic and beautifully crafted stories such as Never Let Me Go, Orphan Black, and Fringe will find themselves haunted by this unsettling debut.

The two Earths are identical in almost every way. Two copies of every city, every building, even every person. But the people from the second Earth know something their duplicates do not—two versions of the same thing cannot exist. They—and their whole planet—are slowly disappearing. Lira has been trained mercilessly since childhood to learn everything she can about her duplicate, to be a ruthless sleeper-assassin who kills that other Lirael and steps seamlessly into her life.

An intricate, literary stand-alone from an astonishing new voice, The Unquiet takes us deep inside the psyche of a strong teenage heroine struggling with what she has been raised to be and who she really is.

From the Back Cover:

There are two Earths, almost identical in every way—two copies of every person, every city, every stone or blade of grass—but one Earth is slowly disappearing, person by person, city by city. And they don't plan to go quietly. Lirael has been training since she was a child to be a merciless sleeper-soldier for her vanishing planet.

Her mission is to kill her duplicate on the other Earth and slip seamlessly into her life. The family never even suspects they are living with an imposter.

She is the perfect soldier.

At least, she is in the beginning.

But the wait for the final order—to rise up and take over the planet—is long.By the time it comes, will Lirael still be willing to destroy everyone who has ever loved her?
