Reviews

* "No one does doom like Neal Shusterman... He and his debut novelist son have crafted a world of dark thirst and fiery desperation, which, despite tendrils of hope that thread through the conclusion, feels alarmingly near to our future."--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW
* "The authors do not hold back... Lovers of horror action fiction will feel right at home with this terrifyingly realistic story of our tenuous relationship with the environment and of the resilience of the human spirit in the face of desperate situations."--Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
* "The palpable desperation that pervades the plot as it thunders toward the ending feels true, giving it a chilling air of inevitability... a study of how extreme circumstances can bring out people's capacity for both panic and predation, ingenuity and altruism."--Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
This superb mini-apocalyptic cautionary tale is sure to please all readers--School Library Connection
