Reviews

"[A] transcendent middle-grade debut. An accessible, age-appropriate introduction to deeper themes of both the intellect and the spirit . . . The plot is suspenseful, moves at a rapid pace, and is heavily sprinkled with fascinating characters . . . This book screams for a sequel." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Charming and clever . . . All readers will enjoy this novel as an adventure story featuring a team of unlikely friends with an array of talents--each essential to their mission to restore the Fetch to its proper place." --Shelf Awareness, starred review

"Herrick weaves a fast-paced fantasy with great twists and turns that will grab readers from the start." --Booklist

"Take one part quantum physics, one part metaphysical nihilism, one part pagan mysticism, add a handful of truly fantastic fourteen-year-olds, and BAM! You have yourself an amazingly fun book." --Shelver's Anonymous
