Reviews

Revoyr [is] an edgy and spellbinding writer with an uncanny gift for aligning human struggles with nature's glory and perils . . . . With ravishing descriptions of the magnificent landscape, unrelenting suspense, incisive psychology, and shrewd perspectives on matters of race and gender, Revoyr has created a gripping tale of unintended adventure and profound transformation.

-- "Booklist, Starred Review"
A suspenseful adventure story that explores how people react to danger, uncertainty, fear, and life-or-death choices . . . . This is an exciting, page-turning adventure story that reveals how good people can do things totally contrary to their own moral code, and the conclusion will both surprise and satisfy.-- "Publishers Weekly"
Revoyr travels LA's patchwork neighborhoods--delineating gangs and money, color and prejudice--and nicely sketches 'the grand, untamed Sierra.' Like Deliverance, a tense . . . morality tale formed in the crucible of physical duress.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
What a pleasure it is seeing characters that live and breathe in the same textured universe that we do. . . . Linked to complicated national issues, imbued with layered representations of Angelenos, [Revoyr] has brought us an intellectually adroit, emotionally nerve-wracking, page-turning thriller.-- "Los Angeles Review of Books"
Even at its deadliest, Revoyr makes the high altitude seem mesmerizing. . . . Revoyr has created characters we care for, issues we need to think about, and vistas that linger, making reading her book almost as much of a rush as scaling the sheer, icy rock of the Sierra Nevada.

-- "San Francisco Chronicle"
