Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This will appeal to fans of the first installment as well as those who enjoy gory reads.” School Library Journal
“The second book in Grant’s series moves as quickly as Mara and Messenger do when they are working, gliding from one event to another, narrated by Mara’s sometimes-philosophical, sometimes-snarky voice. The horrific punishments are sobering, but so are the realistic horrors that the guilty inflict on the innocent…Readers will…be satisfied with Mara’s growing maturity and acceptance of her own fate.” Booklist
“An absorbing morality tale of guilt and redemption.” Kirkus Reviews

Michael Grant, author of the Gone series and the Magnificent Twelve series, has spent much of his life on the move. Raised in a military family, he attended ten schools in five states, as well as three in France. Even as an adult he kept moving and became a writer in part because it was one of the few jobs that wouldn’t tie him down. His fondest dream is to spend a year circumnavigating the globe and visiting every continent, even Antarctica.
