If you fail, you burn. Witch's Pyre - the final book in the Worldwalker trilogy - is the electrifying conclusion from internationally bestselling author of the Starcrossed series, Josephine Angelini. Lily Proctor has come a long way from the weak, sickly girl she used to be.

Thrust once again into a society different from anything they have ever seen, Lily and her coven are determined to find answers to find a new path to victory, a way to defeat the monstrous Woven without resorting to nuclear weapons or becoming a tyrannical mass murderer like her alternate self, Lillian. But sometimes winning requires sacrifices . . . and when the only clear path to victory lies at Lillian's side, what price will Lily be willing to pay?
