"Fennel's sightless point of view forces Henley to step up to the descriptive plate, and she nails it with vivid and sensory prose. Those who loved Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games and Veronica Roth's Divergent will find an enjoyable read in this first installment."
"The prose flows smoothly and easily but there are much deeper issues lying beneath the surface of the story that are captivating and will hold the interest of readers of any age . . . I was quickly transported into the world of The Scourge and plummeted breathlessly toward the resolution. This is a very good book and a good look at just what science fiction can achieve when in the hands of a capable writer."

"From the moment I started reading this book I was hooked . . . The Scourge is not only a story of survival; it is also a story of awakening, love, family devotion."
