Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It is a gorgeous story with masterful pacing and unforgettable passages.” Boston Globe
“Ness brilliantly plays with contrasts: life and death, privacy and exposure, guilt and innocence. In characteristic style, the author of the Chaos Walking trilogy delves into the stuff of nightmares for an existential exploration of the human psyche.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
