Editorial Reviews

"Terrific--intelligent, inventive, dark, and engrossing . . . Shannon has remarkable talent for world-building . . . But her most sublime otherworldly creation is the complex, ever evolving, scrappy yet touching Paige Mahoney . . . [She] has me hooked." -NPR.com"Invokes both the political tyranny of George Orwell and the . . . mythmaking of J.R.R. Tolkien." -USA Today"Action-filled . . . Shannon is likely on the brink of literary stardom." -New York"[A] dazzlingly brainy, witty, and bewitching tale of outrageous courage, heroic compassion, transcendent love, and the quest for freedom . . . the first in a thoughtful fantasy series by a brilliant young writer." -Booklist (starred review)"This book is for those who like their dystopian science fiction multilayered, philosophical and complex." -Kirkus Reviews
