Review by: Jessa Callaver on March 16, 2013 :
This was an intense read.
I am always blown away and entirely amazed with Andrijeski's ability to describe a world of her own making - to pull the reader into every fiber, fabric and frown, to have you sensing every molecule, trudging through every hard-walked bend in the road, right along with the characters she creates. And "The Culling" was no different.

Dropping you into the thick it from page one, Andrijeski takes no mercy on her characters and I admire her for that. It helps craft the exciting story, nail-biting scenes and vivid atmosphere you find in her books. Another lustrous offering! ****4 Stars*

Review by: Banty Hen Publishing on Nov. 28, 2011 :
19-year-old Jet dwells amidst the ruins of a post-alien invasion Earth. When we meet her, she's been discovered on one of her trading runs by a 'culler', an alien ship that kidnaps people and takes them off to god-knows-where.

Yes, the post-industrial wasteland and alien kidnappings have been seen before, from James Cameron (Terminator Salvation) to Stephen King (The Gunslinger). However, JCA adds her own noirish spin - one with lots of kinetic action - on the unfolding events, and there's a nifty twist at the end of this selection that makes it more than worth a read.

Notice I said 'this selection'. That's because the 'Part 1' in the title itself shows that it's the first part of a serial novel - something more than a few writers are trying out these days. If you don't mind waiting for the final resolution of this 'miniseries' then by all means, check this one out!
