Reviews

Taking cues from Judge Dredd, Mad Max, and The Hunger Games, Rivera...has created a uniquely brutal hellscape...Readers are left with a more ambiguous--and ambitious--tale that will have them questioning what kinds of people they'd be if freed from society's mores.--Booklist, Starred
There is plenty of gritty action to propel readers through the plot, but it is Chief Rocka's internal struggles and vulnerabilities that are the most compelling and memorable. Rivera effectively presents the complexity of female relationships, which will resonate strongly with readers....A novel exploration of societal roles, gender, and equality through the eyes of captivating lead.--School Library Journal, Starred
Rivera weaves a story of self-discovery, blood relations and chosen families, substance addiction, and race into her sci-fi tale, including details from Afro and Indigenous Caribbean culture and history, showing resistance and survival--and blasting it to the future. A dystopian mixtape of boldness, sisterhood, and questioning the status quo...this book leaves readers wanting more of Nalah and Las Mal Criadas.--Horn Book Magazine
Rivera showcases multiple intricate character arcs and details several societies through impressive worldbuilding; young readers drawn to complex action novels that challenge conventions will find this read rewarding.--Publishers Weekly
Rivera (The Education of Margot Sanchez, 2017) crafts a feminist, futurist Latinx dystopia.--Kirkus Reviews
