Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-Fans of The Hunger Games will devour this book. The world suffered a cataclysmic flood a century earlier that the survivors believe occurred as punishment by their gods for the evils of that civilization. Now living in the Arctic North, bound by ice and water on all sides, the rulers of the Aerie are rigid and demanding to ensure that they not repeat the evil of their ancestors and bring about another flood. After the death of her twin brother, Eamon, 18-year-old Eva, the daughter of an Aerie ruler, decides to take his place in The Testing, which involves traveling by dogsled over snow and ice to an area where artifacts from the past corrupt civilization must be excavated from a crevasse in the ice. Proper and popular Jasper of the ruling class and outsider Lukas of the Boundary People, servants to the ruling class, are both vying for Eva's attention. Until her twin's death, Eva was a dutiful daughter to her status-conscious parents and not averse to their plans of marrying her to Jasper. Lukas, who had been training Eamon, now works with Eva to prepare her for The Testing. On the eve of the event, he gives her Eamon's journal, which makes her realize that her brother was about to embark on a mission that would change her world forever, but the journal isn't clear about how. The relic that Eva finds during The Testing, and her interpretation of its meaning, alters her worldview and will ultimately lead her to challenge all she believes and holds dear. Although Relic's story line is familiar, Terrell has created an interesting setting and memorable characters. Teens will be looking forward to the next installment in the series.-Kathy Kirchoefer, Henderson County Public Library, NCα(c) Copyright 2013.

Praise for Relic

"Heather Terrell excavates a richly realized and adventurous world from the iced-over wreck of our own."
—William Alexander, New York Times bestseller and 2012 National Book Award winner

“Fans of The Hunger Games will devour this book.”
School Library Journal

“With threads from The Hunger Games, The Giver, and other dystopian novels, Terrell spins her own story, which has plenty of adventure, some unanswered questions, and a dash of romance... The way relics—iPhones, guns, even makeup—affect the story adds an ironic touch.”

"Part post-apocalyptic fiction and part high fantasy, Relic is the beginning of a trilogy that is written artfully and with a voice you will not soon forget.  Delicately weaving in elements of Inuit culture as well as elements you might find in Game of Thrones, Heather Terrell creates a world that is as intricate as it is icy.  The intrigue and mystery make it a page-turner, and the rich and complex characters make it hard to forget.  I cannot wait for the sequel!"
—E. Kristen Anderson, Editor of Dear Teen Me

"Technology is a fragile thing and another Dark Age could be closer than you think.... the world built in Relic is unique and has a rich allegorical quality."
—Pittsburgh Post Gazette

“A dystopia set in a post–global-warming future: plucky heroine, lying leaders, ridiculous endurance tests and, yes, two hot guys.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Even when Eva knows that what she’s doing might come with unforeseen, negative consequences, she cannot ignore her need to know the truth. I love her for that.”
Kirkus Book Report by Mandy Curtis of Forever Young Adult

“I already can’t wait for the second book of the RELIC series to come out. Eva is a strong female character and a great role model for teen girls. This is also a great book for both teens and parents to read.”
—Jennifer Wagner, Connect with your Teens through Pop Culture and Technology

“An exciting tale of self-discovery and one of great societal commentary.... Deft world-building creates a believable society in an icy clime with a strong and well-rounded main character. Eva’s choices for the future will leave readers anxious to see her tale continue in the next installment... a fresh new perspective in the dystopian field.”

"A remarkable story.... highly recommended."
—Mysterious Reviews --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
