Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Gwennie thought her family had been cut a break when they won the Lottery, but what they didn't know was that the winners were sent into servitude. Her new goal in life is to find her family, and after she does the unexpected, she sends the elite Empyrean government into a new level of panic. Cael is on a mission to save his sister, but his journey reveals truths about his family and himself that he never would have expected. Blightborn is told in the alternating voices of Cael and Gwennie. Although this is the second book in Wendig's "Heartland Trilogy," listeners beginning with this volume will not have a difficult time catching up on the story line. Wendig has created a cast of characters who have hidden depths and an adventure that starts immediately and rolls through the entire audiobook. Nick Podehl's narration is smooth and clear, and when action scenes or high stakes events transpire, his voice increases in speed as if the listener's heart and mind would also palpitate to the actions. This will make a strong addition to a middle school, high school, or public library collection.—Elizabeth L. Kenyon, Merrillville High School, IN

Review

Praise for Under the Empyrean Sky, Book One in The Heartland Trilogy:

“This strong first installment rises above the usual dystopian fare thanks to Wendig’s knack for disturbing imagery and scorching prose.” —Publishers Weekly

“Wendig brilliantly tackles the big stuff—class, economics, identity, love, and social change—in a fast-paced tale that never once loses its grip on pure storytelling excitement. Well-played, Wendig. Well-played.” —Libba Bray, author of the Gemma Doyle Trilogy, Going Bovine, and The Diviners

“A tense dystopian tale made more strange and terrifying by its present-day implications.” —Booklist

Under the Empyrean Sky is like a super-charged, genetically modified hybrid of The Grapes of Wrath and Star Wars. Wendig delivers a thrilling, fast-paced adventure set in a future agri-dystopia. Fascinating world building, engaging and deep characters, smooth, electric prose.” —John Hornor Jacobs, author of The Twelve-Fingered Boy

“A thoroughly imagined environmental nightmare with taut pacing and compelling characters that will leave readers eager for more.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A lunatic, gene-spliced, biofueled thriller. Fear the corn.” —Tom Pollock, author of The City’s Son

“An imaginative, page-turning adventure that will delight science fiction fans and have them impatiently waiting for the next installment.” —Joelle Charbonneau, author of The Testing
