|Plot Summary of Scatterlings|
|"After a strange accident, a 15 year old girl wakes not knowing who or where she is. Strange voices whisper in her head, but the words mean nothing to Merlin who can't even remember what she looks like. Alone in a strange land Merlin first meets the Scatterlings, a group of people who are rebelling against the clans and reject the ways of the Citizen Gods. Merlin learns the ways of this new world while trying to find out who she is and in the process discovers that only she has the power to destroy the violence and lies of the Citizen Gods."
Aimee, Resident Scholar
