Reviews
"A harrowing glimpse into a future all the more chilling because it's rooted in history. Our marrow holds many stories. The best ones are of love, hope, and resistance. Miigwech to Cherie Dimaline for this story! Hunting by Stars is a revelatory must read."
-- "Angeline Boulley, New York Times bestselling author of Firekeeper's Daughter"
"Spellbinding. Straight from the heart of resilience--Dimaline shows how Indigenous people hold on to dreams even when trapped in nightmares."
-- "Wab Kinew, author of the bestselling The Reason You Walk"
"What a brilliant and utterly gripping book this is. Beautiful on a sentence level, kinetic, and possessed of a deep humanity. Cherie Dimaline is one of the finest worldbuilders working in fiction today, and here she has crafted something truly profound on the nature of survival, community, and the resurrective power of a story carried and told. To live up to the legacy of one of the best dystopian novels in recent memory is no small talk--Hunting by Stars does that and more."
-- "Omar El Akkad, author of the bestselling American War"
"Lush, devastating, and hope-filled novel. . .The action never lets up and is inextricably intertwined with the personal and community histories of the diverse characters who band together from various nations. Dimaline paints a nightmarish world that is too easy to imagine; it will haunt readers long after they turn the final page." -- "Kirkus Reviews"
"Dimaline has created vivid characters who propel a suspenseful and atmospheric story that boldly brings past, and ongoing, darkness to light." -- "Booklist"
"The brutal realities faced by French in the residential school will leave readers thinking about what Indigenous people endured in the residential schools of the past. The idea of storytelling and the importance of realizing that the past and present are interwoven is beautifully conveyed and will keep readers anxious for what comes next." -- "School Library Journal"
