Review by: J.P. GANLEY on March 23, 2012 : star star star star
I enjoyed this, even though speculative fiction is not a genre I read. The story flows well and the voice of David, a teenager, is authentic. I like the theme of ‘Them vs Us’ , ‘Outsiders vs Insiders’ and its implications – preconceived notions, prejudice, tradition, innocence, control, choice, loyalty, traitors … they really come through in the characterisation, where character drives the narrative. The nice twist at the end was very satisfying. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Great story with twists and choice little moments that caught me by surprise. The reflexive hand-squeeze between David and Hannah, for example, generated a small warm spot of humanity in an otherwise bleak world.
