Disturbing futuristic world... Even those who are not fans of the fantasy genre may still find themselves captivated by the vivid imagery of the world Foon has created. (Evette Berry Resource Links)
The novel has strong characterization, and tension and conflict within and between characters permeate the book... an engaging read. Highly Recommended. (Sylvia Pantaleo Canadian Materials 2004-11-12)

We get to find out what happened to Stowe, Roan's little sister, but she's far less likable than Roan. She's not an out-and-out brat, because there's a pity factor that stops you from hating her completely, but she becomes a manipulative bitch and takes far too much pleasure in supposedly "being miserable". Roan, in comparison, starts to show signs of Designated Hero status, because what Stowe has to put up with makes Roan's Dirt Walker journey look like a cakewalk.
Muddy plotting caused quite a bit of confusion for me, because one minute Roan is determined to rescue the kids caught in the Dreamworld At All Costs, and then kind of, sort of decides he's going to maybe try rescuing his sister? More than half the book is spent watching his roundabout way of thinking how to do it, and he's neither decisive or determined. He really doesn't even angst about it, which one would think a natural course of action, however irritating. Damn it, why can't I hate these books!?
I liked the character of Kamyar and hated Mabatan. Kamyar played devil's advocate in Dirt Walkers, and was rebuffed by Roan's goody-two-shoes assurance that the Dirt Eaters weren't bad guys. Then, when it turns out they are, Kamyar embodies a necessary evil Trickster archetype that goes where Roan fears to tread and breaks laws Roan fears to break. (Like any good Trickster archetype should, but when it starts overshadowing the hero's pro-activeness, it starts to raise an eyebrow.)
Mabatan, on the other hand, is a Mary Sue.Read more ›
The excellence of this book is the it leaves you wanting more. I would recommend for every fantasy fan except that need complicated plots and characters. However, this is an excellent bridge book for teens, especially those that enjoy the Harry Potter series. This one is different, but will receive the same reaction from students.
