"Suzanne Collins may have put dystopian literature on the YA map with 'The Hunger Games'... but Bacigalupi is one of the genre's masters, employing inventively terrifying details in equally imaginative story lines."―Los Angeles Times

* "Beautifully written, filled with high-octane action, and featuring badly damaged but fascinating and endearing characters, this fine novel tops its predecessor and can only increase the author's already strong reputation."―Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "The novel's greatest success lies in the creation of a world that is so real, the grit and decay of war and ruin will lay thick on the minds of readers long after the final page. The narrative, however, is equally well crafted.... Breathtaking."―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Bacigalupi writes with a furious energy that makes this brilliant depiction of an all-too-believable future impossible to forget. A story that will resonate beyond its final page."
Booklist, starred review

* "Bacigalupi's intense, action-filled novel is a heartbreaking and powerfully moving portrait of individual resiliency amidst extreme circumstances that rivals, if not surpasses, the excellence of its predecessor."―The Horn Book, starred review

* "Bacigalupi brings to life a post-apocalyptic America that thrills the mind."―VOYA, starred review

"A compelling read, this engaging book does not glorify war and violence, but shows its true nature."―School Library Journal

"A new Paolo Bacigalupi novel is reason to celebrate--no matter how old you are."―The Associated Press

"A heartbreaking tale of loyalty and the fight to survive."―Library Media Connection
