Reviews

"Although stunning action sequences have always been a hallmark of the series, its true excellence is due in large part to Marsden's thoughtful exploration of the psychological costs of the teens' heroic, violent exploits." In the closing sequence, he realistically examines the emotional turbulence of the sudden attack of peace...it may be time for Marsden to shut down his engines, but it's been one heck of a ride." The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"As always, the plot keeps readers on the edge of their seats... an outstanding story of friendship, courage, and survival." Kirkus Reviews

"Marsden is at his exciting, if somewhat improbable, best when writing about Ellie's single-handed train sabotage and the teens' attempts to blow up a huge truck stop on the road to Cavendish." Booklist, ALA

"The action sequences are gripping and there is an expected amount of violence." School Library Journal
