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.

From Booklist

When Eva’s twin, Eamon, dies as he prepares for the Testing, she decides she must face the ice world of the Boundary Lands in his place. It has been 250 years since the gods, furious at the way the people of earth worshipped at the altar of Apple, sent a flood that covered most of the land except the New North. These survivors live in a medieval style, and though no Maiden has tested in more than a century, Eva has the help of Lukas, a native of the Boundary Lands who schools her in the ways of snow, ice, and survival. Her main task is to find a relic that will reinforce the government’s thesis that technology destroyed the old society. With threads taken 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 that will certainly be explored in the next installments. The way relics—iPhones, guns, even makeup—affect the story adds an ironic touch. Grades 7-10. --Ilene Cooper
