"Warning! Don't start this book unless you have time to finish it in one sitting because you will not want to put it down! I read this book as fast as I could just so I could read it all over again! This is a heart pounding, wild action packed adventure with characters that you will fall in love with and that stay with you long after you've finished the book. It is one of the most vivid books I've read in a long time--it literally played like a movie in my head. Stunning." -- Ellen Oh, author of Spirit Hunters, founder and president of We Need Diverse Books

"Open the cover of Rebel Seoul and you'll enter the thrilling worlds of Old Seoul and Neo Seoul, where the lines between humanity and technology blur, oppression and treachery are ever-present, and battles are fought in the coolest giant robots in YA literature today. I was mesmerized from start to finish. Look alive, world, here comes Axie Oh." -- Mike Jung, author of Unidentified Suburban Object
