Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up—Violet Crowley lives on New Earth and works at Protocol Hall and when necessary, she initiates the use of the Intercept, which tracks the feelings of all citizens via an embedded chip. The Intercept has the power to use those feelings against them. Old Earth remains, in ruins and mostly abandoned, while a small population struggles to survive or escape. Meanwhile, a rebel faction seeks to eliminate the use of the Intercept, threatening the safety of New Earth. The story starts slow, warms up quickly, and then rushes to the conclusion. Readers will identify with the narrative's focus on emotions and the ways in which the Intercept tracks feelings and uses them to control the population. This plot point is well deployed and thoughtfully executed, while a series of last-minute plot twists and reveals challenge readers to finish the tale. Violet's character is well written, but the motivations and actions of the other characters are thinly drawn. Keller admirably establishes how Old and New Earth exist, but fails to expand on the larger political aspects or the personal history of the Crowley family. Despite these flaws in the story line, the ending packs an emotional punch and provides a satisfying wrap-up. VERDICT Readers will be hooked by the initial plot and able to overlook the flaws that plague the final third of the book. A good choice for most YA sci-fi shelves.—Amanda Foust, Consultant, Littleton, CO


“A dazzling, thought-provoking vision of the future that raises the question: Is safety worth the sacrifice of freedom?” ―Booklist

The Dark Intercept grabbed me from the first page and shook me until the last. A riveting and suspenseful story of love, risk, and betrayal.” ―EMMY LAYBOURNE, author of Berserker, Sweet, and the Monument 14 trilogy

“A chilling and thought-provoking look at the power of weaponized emotion.” ―MELISSA LANDERS, author of the Alienated trilogy

“Both cautionary and hopeful―a rare, literary feat.” ―GENNIFER ALBIN, New York Times bestselling author of the Crewel World trilogy

“A stormy, spine-tingling ride in which everything remembered and once felt in your life can be used against you.” ―BLUE BALLIETT, author of Chasing Vermeer

The Dark Intercept goes straight to the heart of why privacy matters in today's world. Keller has written an accessible coming-of-age adventure where the teenage protagonist comes to understand the consequences of living in a society that monitors everyone's emotions, including her own.” ―MICHAEL C. ROBINSON, Chair of the American Library Association Intellectual Freedom Committee's Privacy Subcommittee

“Julia Keller writes so viscerally that she takes the readers with her into the worlds she has created. The Intercept is a fascinating springboard which she uses to explore the importance of feelings, and how they affect our lives and choices.” ―BETSY FRASER, Selector, Calgary Public Library (Alberta, Canada), and 2016 YALSA/ABC-CLIO/Greenwood Service to Young Adults Achievement Award-winner
