Product Details


Kwaymullina’s rich world-building, which incorporates the worldviews and ancient stories of Australia’s indigenous people, makes this series stand out in the crowded field of YA dystopian fiction.
—School Library Journal

Seasoned with enough intriguing speculation—what do we mean by "human"? When and why might we want to revisit that definition?—original worldbuilding, and sympathetic characters to hold reader interest. Fresh and fascinating.
—Kirkus Reviews

Kwaymullina’s story is indeed intriguing for its unusual melding of imagery. She brings together the natural world, animal creators, repressive government, and living artificial intelligence—speaking to technological and ecological concerns with a futuristic imagination that is both vigorous and conceptually demanding.
—The Horn Book

The second installment of this dystopian ecothriller holds its own with a surprising revelation that offers an intriguing twist to the trilogy…aboriginal Australian author Kwaymullina effectively uses speculative technology to illuminate a range of issues teens face today, in particular, bioethics and racism.
