Praise for Burning Midnight:
“In an impressive YA debut, adult SF author McIntosh spins an action-packed adventure. . . . An engaging cast and thought-provoking premise help fuel this thriller.” —Publishers Weekly
“A quick read with likable characters, the story is well paced with a quirky view of the future. A great addition to YA sci-fi shelves.” —SLJ
“[With] a film-ready action climax . . . this fast-paced urban quest wears its agenda on its sleeve, but it’s conveyed with verve and an endearing sense of justice.” —Kirkus Reviews
“With an inventive premise, this sci-fi adventure offers a scavenger hunt story with layers both political and emotional. The detailed backstory and underlying logic are clearly conveyed without dragging down the pace, and the plot manages to twist and surprise. . . . Ultimately a winning story of friendship in the face of easy money and power, this novel has much to offer the reader who’s up for something new.” —The Bulletin
"Burning Midnight is for 1) adrenaline junkies and gamers 2) obsessive collectors 3) people who can't get enough of crazy endings. I'm all of these things, and I loved it." —Margaret Stohl, author of Marvel's Black Widow: Forever Red and co-author of the internationally bestselling Beautiful Creatures series
Praise for Will McIntosh
Winner of a Hugo Award for Best Short Story
Nebula Award Finalist
★ “This is speculative fiction at its most personal and powerful, extrapolating current social and technological trends and exploring how they would affect future people. . . . Intriguing, quirky, perversely charming and definitely affecting.” —Kirkus Reviews on Love Minus Eighty, Starred Review
“[Love Minus Eighty] manages to deliver a light, romantic story without ever sacrificing its dark vision of the future.” —i09.com
“McIntosh is without a doubt one of the most underrated science fiction authors writing today. Defenders is an emotional, action-packed story. . . . McIntosh’s cautionary near-future tale, told from multiple perspectives, serves as a brutally honest portrayal of how humans carelessly exploit, destroy— and in this case create—other species.” —RT Book Reviews (Top Pick)

I enjoyed the characters of Hunter, Dom, and Sully quite a bit. The author gives them each a unique feeling and voice. While Sully is the POV character you could say that the novel is actually more about Hunter (a young girl and person of color) than anyone else. I was pleasantly surprised by the ending, that this was a done-in-one novel, although the world & setting could be used for another story.
I agree with some of the other reviewers that this is just another YA novel (except for the last 50 pages...) Then things become clearer, it's no longer magic, there's an explanation that makes sense. I don't want to spoil the book for others, so pretend you didn't read anything I wrote...
