Clarion ForeWord Reviews
(5/5 stars) It is a fun, exciting, straightforward, good-vs-evil epic, full of action, suspense, danger and tense moments, revelations and reunions, with a lovely, perfectly satisfying conclusion, which will be extremely appealing to Tweens and younger teens...Great lessons in a great story make this book a delight.
San Francisco Book Review (forthcoming, June 2014)
New readers will find this story of rebels working against slavers to be thoroughly engrossing and accessible...deliciously complex, engrossing, and offers an open-ended conclusion that paves the way for Book Three...
Diane Donovan, Senior eBook Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
Johnson gets high marks for conceiving this unique world.
...an intricately detailed world where danger and mystery lurk...A striking cast of colorful characters rounds out this elaborate tale of bravery and the search for justice.
