Review by: Warklaw on Feb. 1, 2011 :
Excellent read, very fast paced book. While I was hesitant at first I ended up not being able to put the book down, and was sad that it was over when I reached the end. It definitely leaves you wanting more, very much looking forward to the next one.

Some of the concepts, such as a completely controlling government like body, are familiar. But the unique setting of the world really draws the reader in by raising questions that one hopes are answered by reading further.

My only complaint really is the pace of the book verses its depth. New concepts and interesting characters are introduced but often little is written about them, and some of the relationships between them seem a bit assumed. It would seem the length of the book would leave room to explore some of these characters and concepts a bit more, without detracting from the pace of the story. I hope that with the next book, promised at the end of this one, more questions as to the inner workings of this unique world and its characters are answered.

Review by: Tom Busha on Jan. 18, 2011 :
In this book, Christopher Rick slowly reveals a dystopian society through the eyes of Myranda as she works her way towards the light. A quick and entertaining read with thought-out characters and a few surprises. If your kids are ok with things like the Graveyard Book (Neil Gaiman) or Thief of Always (Clive Barker) they will have no problem understanding or dealing with the events in this book. I found it worth the time to take a look.
