Reviews
"Intriguing and layered worldbuilding that draws on the author's Australian Indigenous culture steals the show in this serpentine fantasy adventure." --Publishers Weekly

"Tucked into a twisty, fast-paced narrative that explores legacies of colonialism are subtle messages about the ever-changing, symbiotic web of life. Intriguing and imaginative." --Kirkus Reviews

"Kwaymullina spins a fabulous, otherworldly mythology around the dominant gods, the world they invaded, and Treesinger culture. Bell is a sarcastic, personable narrator, a smart-mouthed Chosen One who discovers friends in unexpected places and learns to acknowledge the pain beneath her own tough-girl exterior." --Bulletin

"A survival story that tackles huge issues, while simultaneously existing as a fantasy romp with a main character who is endearingly honest--at least, as far as the reader is concerned." --Booklist
