Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

This epic sci-fi adventure will grab fans of Doctor Who and Blade Runner. Twins Roger and Dodger were genetically manufactured in a lab so that their psychotic creator, Reed, who is also genetically manufactured, could unlock godlike powers. The twins are separated and raised on opposite ends of the country. Despite the distance, they are linked and nothing will stop them from connecting with each other. The plot is intricate yet fast paced, with classic sci-fi elements such as genetic engineering, psychic links, alternate dimensions, and time loops. The book follows the protagonists through elementary to graduate school, and teens will readily identify with the characters' thoughts and actions. VERDICT An excellent recommendation for those who enjoyed Lev Grossman's The Magicians and Lauren Oliver's Replica.-Melanie Leivers, Palm Beach Country Library System, FLα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

"McGuire has an uncanny knack for taking the worst things that lurk in the shadows and weaving them into an absolute delight."―Becky Chambers

"Roger and Dodger are the heart of this story. They're its pulse and purpose ― these two supernaturally gifted kids who come off like kids. And this is the greatest trick McGuire pulls here … It's the kind of book where you want to reach into the page just to help them out, to warn them of what's coming. It blossoms."―NPR

"This is a fascinating novel by an author of consummate skill."―Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Satisfying on all levels of the reading experience: thrilling, emotionally resonant, and cerebral.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"McGuire sets a high bar for alchemy-based stories in this new stand-alone, twisting themes of time and space as seen through the eyes of children. . . . This singular work keeps readers thinking long after the final page."―Library Journal, starred review

"An excellent recommendation for those who enjoyed Lev Grossman's The Magicians and Lauren Oliver's Replica."―School Library Journal, starred review

“[A]n ambitious piece of world building from a master of the craft . . . thoroughly engaging.”―Booklist

"Readers should come for the tightly constructed world and stay for the pleasure of watching the twins choose each other, come what may."―Shelf Awareness

"This is a tricky book to pull off, no doubt about it. But that trickery is pulled off with the kind of aplomb that has become one of McGuire’s great skills. What a story to read (and re-read). If you’ve got a love for fantasy, you should read Middlegame."―Entertainment Weekly's Cultures

"Imaginatively conceived, carefully constructed, fantastically written ... another delightful and captivating outing from Seanan McGuire."―bookreporter

"An excellent recommendation for those who enjoyed Lev Grossman's The Magicians and Lauren Oliver's Replica."―School Library Journal

"Readers should come for the tightly constructed world and stay for the pleasure of watching the twins choose each other, come what may."―Shelf Awareness
