Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A strong debut from Lee, combining brutal, visceral athletic scenes with science fiction action, all woven around a complex moral dilemma.” Publishers Weekly
“This gripping sci-fi novel will have teens screaming for a sequel.” School Library Journal
“A superior sci-fi outing that doesn’t need mad scientists to provide suspense. Top-notch science fiction and a great sports novel too.” Kirkus Reviews
