Howey's first novel is fast-paced, combining elements of military science fiction, space opera, and even romance, to flesh out his story of a young girl becoming a woman. The excitement never lets up, and the conclusion works perfectly to wrap up the novel and leave a huge tease for the second book, 2010's Molly Fyde and the Land of Light.
Howey does an excellent job in a book that rarely reminds you it is a first novel, and is a wonderful example of the big boys not always having the best books. This is one not to miss. And after you read it, you will be waiting in line, along with me, for the sequel. -- LUKE'S REVIEWS
A charming, well-written and beautifully realized story. I loved it. -- DOUGLAS PRESTON

The Parsona Rescue is one of the best YA sci-fi novels I've read the entire year. I absolutely loved this book and cannot wait for the next installment. Don't let it pass you by! Whether you are a sci-fi fan, or simply a fan of adventure and love stories, this novel shouldn't be missed! -- THE HIDING SPOT
Hugh crafted great worlds where anything is possible. With the way this book ended, I can't wait to read the next installment in this series. -- FANTASTIC BOOK REVIEW
