Every year, members of Jack's community are invited to meet with the wealthy founders of the Stalk, the living space elevator that casts its massive shadow over every part of her life. Every few years, one of the chosen is a Digger like Jack--who returns to the community only to throw themselves to their death. Jack doesn't want to think about the Stalk. She doesn't want to think about the friends she's lost. But this year, it's her turn—and refusing the invitation isn't an option. When she arrives, she only has one goal: stay alive. But as she encounters a mix of people in the highest positions of power and other ordinary citizens like herself, she begins to realize that the truth about the Stalk is bigger than all of them--and darker than she could have imagined. And she's the only one with the power to stop it. The Stalk is a science fiction retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk, and the second in the Rove City series.
