Summary Near-future science-fiction crimes bleed into dystopian horror centuries later in a wildly imaginative genre-hybrid sequel to Archivist Wasp;Excruciating, cathartic, and triumphant.;Kirkus Reviews, starred review"I loved Archivist Wasp, and Latchkey surpasses it in every way."—Amal El-Mohtar, Hugo-award-winning author and criticIsabel, once known as Wasp, has become leader of the fearsome upstarts, the teen girl acolytes who are adjusting to a new way of life after the overthrow of the sadistic Catchkeep-priest. They live in an uneasy alliance with the town of Sweetwater—an alliance that will be tested to its limits by the dual threats of ruthless raiders from the Waste and a deadly force from the Before-time that awaits in long-hidden tunnels. Years ago Isabel befriended a nameless ghost, a supersoldier from the Before-time with incredible powers even after death, and their adventure together in the underworld gave her the strength and knowledge to change the brutal existence of the Catchkeep acolytes for the better. To save Sweetwater, Isabel will have to unlock the secrets of the twisted experimental program from centuries gone by that created the supersoldier and killed his friends: the Latchkey Project. Latchkey continues the story begun in Kornher-Stace's widely acclaimed Archivist Wasp, an Andre Norton Award finalist that was selected by Kirkus Reviews as one of the Best Teen Books of 2015."Latchkey is explosively imaginative. This narrative shimmers with rich characters and a nuanced mythology…Readers will leave this world feeling as if they've drawn new breath."--Roshani Chokshi, New York Times-bestselling author of Aru Shah and the End of TimeMore Praise for Latchkey"Nicole Kornher-Stace's Latchkey is a little like retracing a war veteran's scars with a scalpel and asking, 'So. Does this hurt more than the original?' It does, of course. Hurts good, hurts deep…Has there ever been such longing, fueled by such darkness and adrenaline? Has there ever been such satisfaction, and at such a cost?" —C. S. E. Cooney, World Fantasy Award-winning author of Bone Swans"Building on the deeply-realized Archivist Wasp, in Latchkey we are given a world even more fallen and brutal…Cathartic, feminist, explosively imaginative and masterfully told, Kornher-Stace gives us a second-world fantasy that transports our minds while, time and again, it emotionally arrives."—Carlos Hernandez, author of Sal and Gabi Break the Universe"What a great read! This surreal dreamscape of a book delves deeper into the unique world of the Andre Norton Award finalist Archivist Wasp."—Beth Cato, author of The Clockwork Dagger and Breath of Earth"Fierce, blazing, brilliant. The mythic and brutal world of Nicole Kornher-Stace's Latchkey is so richly realized, you don't step into it, you fall."—Jacqueline West, New York Times–bestselling authorCover art by Jacquelin de Leon.
