Reviews

Praise for Caster:

* Chapman's constructed magic is a complex, balanced system that limits the characters to keep the narrative unpredictable; the battle scenes are creative and fast paced, and the high stakes that Aza faces in her personal life and during the tournament are anxiety-inducing in their believability. Information Aza uncovers about the secrets in her life are parsed out so that the plot never drags; readers will have a hard time putting this one down. -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

* Chapman has created compelling young adult novels before, but this is a cut above; the fully realized and atmospheric dystopia is crafted at a level not seen often. This stunning fantasy will fly off the shelves. -- Booklist, starred review

A dark and, at times, vicious and violent story of will and questionable honor. -- Kirkus Reviews
