"[A] gripping page-turner...The authentic setting, compelling characters and taut, suspenseful plot claim attention throughout. Bass refuses to oversimplify human beings...A different kind of war story, highly recommended."--Kirkus Reviews

"The last quarter of the book is nonstop action...Wilm is a flawed but engaging protagonist, prone to headstrong actions, and he matures believably over the course of the story."--School Library Journal

"Bass has artfully recreated an historical time and place peopled by realistic, three-dimensional characters grappling with their own emotions and global forces they can only barely understand."--Quill & Quire

"[A] riveting page-turner that readers will find impossible to put down."--Canadian Children's Book News
