An 8 book series, Throne of Glass takes you through the life of Celeana and her journey of self discovery, war, and love.
After 15 year old Liz dies, she arrives at a place called Elsewhere. Similar to earth, but much more, Elsewhere is home to sprawling seas, tall mountains, and warm homes. You can't get sick, or older.
In fact, in Elsewhere, you age backwards until you are born again.
In this book about loss and grief, watch Liz deal with the hardships of aging back to her younger self, alongside her grandmother she has never met. Is it possible that a life lived in reverse is better than one lived forward?
