"I loved the world, and thought the authors walked the line between great description and action perfectly ... a cracking start to what promises to be an amazing series."--Tash McAdam, International Bestselling Author of the Psionics Series
"N. J. Tanger has done what many are saying can't be done: put a fresh face on YA dystopian sci fi. This book almost skirts the edges of that genre, but if you enjoyed Ender's Game, City of Ember,or The Hunger Games, you'll find a lot to like in the pages of Chimera."
--Sarah Read, editor Pantheon Magazine
"Chimera is an epic tale of rebellion, prophecy, and perseverance. With touches of Ender's Game, and echoes of Asimov and Heinlein, this visionary story is a tense, exhilarating ride."
--Richard Thomas, author of Disintegration
"Inventive and imaginative story ofa distant colony cut off from Earth, complete with engaging characters and plenty of action. CHIMERA provides an intriguing start to what is obviously a larger story."
--John E. Stith, author of Manhattan Transfer
