Reviews

Praise for "The Severed Tower"

"Mitchell's second in his young adult trilogy is a masterful mix of post-apocalyptic, dystopian science fiction with just a hint of steampunk. His narrative is edge-of-your-seat and nail-bitingly thrilling, his prose concise and visual, his battles epic, his characters memorable, his evildoers nightmarishly atrocious and his stars utterly unforgettable."
"--Romantic Times
""Action keeps pages turning."
"--Kirkus Reviews
""Reminiscent of the fighting between Terminator-style robots and human beings, The Severed Tower is a good choice for teens who enjoyed writings like War of the Worldsby H. G. Wells and fans of science fiction television shows like Doctor Who This trilogy is sure to captivate a wide variety of teen readers."

"Mitchell's epic young adult science fiction masterpiece ends as it began: with a cataclysmic bang. His narrative is so highly, expertly visual, it vividly brings to life the horrors and hopes of his triad of unlikely young champions. The worldbuilding is utterly phenomenal, the semi-familiar scenes breathtakingly ingenious, the enemy ruthless and the co-stars unforgettable. This soon-to-be classic series should be read in order. Bravo!" --"Romantic Times, "Top Pick Gold on "Valley of Fires
