Description

Eva Nine is at her bravest in the final book in the New York Times bestselling trilogy from the fantastical mind of Tony DiTerlizzi.

All hope for a peaceful coexistence between humankind and aliens seems lost in the third installment of the WondLa trilogy. Eva Nine has gone into hiding for fear of luring the wicked Loroc to her companions.

However, news of the city Solas being captured by the human leader, Cadmus Pryde, forces Eva into action once again. With help from an unlikely ally, Eva tries to thwart Loroc’s ultimate plan for both mankind and the alien life on Orbona.

Complete with lavish two-color illustrations and spot art throughout, and starring a host of unforgettable characters that reinforce the importance of friendship, The Battle for WondLa has all the hallmarks of a classic book—of the future.

Praise for The Battle for WondLa (The Search for WondLa #3)

*"The three books that constitute Tony DiTerlizzi's futuristic classic chart an unforgettable journey, masterfully told...The end to Eva's search for her WondLa is deeply touching. Victory has never looked this good."
— Shelf Awareness, starred review

"Like Middle Earth and Oz, Orbona is packed with creatures and places with proper names in unfamiliar languages...DiTerlizzi’s beautiful illustrations are worth the price of admission."
