Reviews

"Furious, frenetic, fun, and "f**k you": All equally valid descriptions of this book and its punk rock chef/psychic warrior protagonist. It's like the X-Men, if everybody was sick of each other's sh*t, they had to work manual labor to pay rent, and Professor X was a sociopathic government stooge. A drunken back-alley brawler of a book."--Robert Brockway, author of The Unnoticeables
"Ford's strengths are evident in the taut acton sequences and suspenseful pacing."--Publishers Weekly
"Like Alias meets X-Men. I loved it."--Maria Lewis
"Teagan is a frank and funny narrator for this wild ride, which starts off with our heroine falling from the 82nd floor of a skyscraper and pretty much never slow down . . . . A fast-paced, high-adrenaline tale that manages to get into some dark themes without losing its sense of fun."--Kirkus
"Ford's debut holds nothing back, delivering a sense of absurd fun and high-speed thrills that more than lives up to that amazing title."--B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
"Ford's breakneck pace keeps the tension high, and the thrills coming the whole way through."--BookPage
"The novel unfolds cinematically with loads of breathtaking action, a perfect candidate for film or television adaptation . . . [Readers will] want more."--Booklist
"The writing and storytelling is as clear and fun as the title indicates."--Locus
