Product Details


[A] … story and character development that can be enjoyed by fans of dystopia whether or not they’ve read the first installment.
—Kirkus Reviews

The political machinations of the previous book are set aside in favor of an adventure story that sets the stage for the final volume in this original dystopian trilogy.
—Booklist Online

Readers who liked the breakneck pacing of the first book will not be disappointed in this one. The action never flags, leaving little time for character development or introspection, which just might appeal to reluctant readers. … Krumwiede has done a masterful job of creating and sustaining suspense.
—School Library Journal

Readers who like fantasy, and especially those who were fans of the first novel, will enjoy this one. The end wraps up nicely with a moment of peace, but it is clear that war is on the horizon for Taemon and his people.
