Reviews

"The premise, based around "infallible prophecies," raises interesting questions about free will . . . This is a thrilling adventure story."--Kirkus Reviews
"This tale of friendship, political intrigue, power, and love is a delight. Soria (Iron Cast, 2016) gives readers characters to invest in, and a situation to trigger conversation without the overblown, overinvolved writing of some fantasies."--Booklist
**STARRED REVIEW**
"The dynamics of friendship, nuanced LGBTQIA+ characters, and political story lines will encourage readers to read to the very end. Soria's stand-alone fantasy novel will resonate with fans of Mackenzi Lee's The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue and Veronica Roth's "Divergent" series."--School Library Journal
"The four protagonists are drawn in strong lines, their personalities bold and distinct with some swoony romance between the two boys and welcome diversity regarding body shape and sexuality . . . readers will be able to follow the twists and turns through to the satisfying conclusion."--The Horn Book
"Get lost in this strange, dark world where a really smart girl and her friends may save the future, or the past."--School Library Connection
"The diverse characters--including those who are bisexual, asexual, and gay--have rich backgrounds; many scenes, especially those set on and around a creepy underground lake, are harrowing; and the emotional finale is truly shocking. Fans of dark, character-driven fantasy will find much to enjoy in this novel by Soria (Iron Cast), which raises interesting questions about fate, free will, and sacrifice."--Publishers Weekly
"The unique fantasy world, featuring divination and the erasure of memories, poses some compelling questions about agency . . . the witty rapport of the teens in the face of foreseen dangers and uncertain outcomes pairs quick laughs with fast-paced action."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
