Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Moves at warp speed, a riveting story with characters so finely drawn that I wonder if Dan Krokos actually is an alien.” Eoin Colfer, New York Times bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series
“Exciting, kinetic, and very visual—my favorite kind of book, a vivid movie in the reader’s head, with some terrific special effects and characters to root for all the way. I’m dying to know what’s next for Mason and Merrin—not to mention ESC and the sinister but complex Tremist.” Gillian Philip, writing as New York Times bestselling author Erin Hunter of the Survivor series
“Krokos launches this series with skill and purpose, immediately placing readers in the action and never slowing down. The intriguing concept, intense sense of adventure, and high stakes are more than enough to let readers look past the coincidences that help drive the story.”      Publishers Weekly
“Enjoyable.” Kirkus Reviews
