“Who Should Read This: Anyone who wants a challenge: This plot is so twisty, I had to read the last chapter twice before I could believe what happened. There's also a very nice balance between badass action and romantic tension for readers who like a good mix of the two.” –MTV.com
“Most [readers] will be drawn in by the love triangle, revelations about Vi and her family, and a dark twist ending that maintains the faintest glimmer of hope.” --PW
"[T]he super-cool, surprise ending...staysentirely true to the plot....[T]he romantic tribulations...may serve to drawromance fans into the sci-fi side....[T]he setting is developed with care anddetail, making for a vividly drawn alternative world. Fans of Matched (BCCB11/10) and other recent romantically focused additions to the dystopiansub-genre may wish to add this to their reading list."
“This debut novelfits neatly into the latest dystopian fantasy craze. Readers will enjoytough-as-nails Violet ‘Vi’ Schoenfeld and her two love interests, Zenn andJag.” –Library Media Connection
