Praise

Starred Review, Booklist, August 1, 2008:
“A marvel to read and will only further solidify Lanagan’s place at the very razor’ s edge of YA speculative fiction.”

Starred Review, The Horn Book Magazine, September/October 2008:
“Lanagan’s poetic style and her masterful employment of mythic imagery give this story of transformation and healing extraordinary depth and beauty.”

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, September 8, 2008:
“Lanagan explores the savage and the gentlest sides of human nature, and how they coexist.”

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, September 15, 2008:
“By turns horrifying and ribald, witty and wise, this tour de force of a novel almost demands multiple readings to fully appreciate each of its layers.”

Starred Review, School Library Journal, November 2008:
“Beautifully written and surprising, this is a novel not to be missed.”
