About The Event
Rogue is the thrilling conclusion to The Vault duology by the award-winning, internationally bestselling author A. J. Betts, which commenced with the bestseller and firm staff favourite, Hive.
A. J. joins our very own Olivia O'Flynn to discuss these superb books and the writing journey.
There was no going back; there was no choice, anymore. I'd chosen out and this was it: hot-cold, dry-wet, bright-dark and lonely.
Hayley has gone rogue.
She's left everything she's ever known - her friends, her bees, her whole world - because her curiosity was too big to fit within the walls of her underwater home.
But what is this new world she's come to? Has Hayley finally found somewhere she can belong?
Or will she have to keep running?
Rogue is the thrilling conclusion to Hive from award-winning, internationally bestselling author A. J. Betts.
"A striking dystopian world: Hive carves out a niche through intriguing and original world-building [with] enough imaginative vitamin to tease readers into anticipating the second and final volume in the series." The Sydney Morning Herald.
