"This fast-paced plot and a surprise twist will make readers
anxious for the next series entry. A must-read for fans of the
previous title; they will not be disappointed."--School Library
"The story's setting is interesting. A decadent matriarchal society is thought provoking. This is a quick read. Good storytelling."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
"Ewing bravely blends several genres. This solidly sets fans up for the next volume."--Kirkus Reviews
