"The present-tense prose style lends immediacy to the action as the most urgent questions keep shifting. The answers speak to Brooks's (The Sword of Shannara) exploration of what makes us human--and what makes us loyal. VERDICT: SF fans will applaud this fast-paced thriller, which has enough espionage, mystery, and dystopian elements to satisfy readers in these related genres." --Library Journal
"After his extremely popular (and massive) Shannara series of heroic fantasy novels, Brooks takes an unexpected turn to a smooth standalone near-future dystopia... Brooks efficiently mixes teen angst with fast, cinematic action." --Publishers Weekly
"Fans of Brooks who are curious how the fantasy master deals with a science-fiction world should like this one." --Booklist
"I didn't expect it to become, 'Just one more chapter and I'll turn out the light, dear.' But it did. Street Freaks is a completely engrossing story." --Robin Hobb, New York Times bestselling author of Assasssin's Fate
"Unforgiving suspense, constant paranoia, a future of ruthless mega-companies, and a young man caught in multiple conspiracies with friends and foes. Totally gripping, totally tense!" --Tamora Pierce, New York Times bestselling author of Tempests and Slaughter
"To say Terry Brooks was one of the most influential authors on me as an aspiring writer is an understatement. His legacy continues in Street Freaks, a thriller both incredibly different from and equally epic to Brooks' past work. Brace yourselves for a wild, dark, and imaginative ride." --Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of Warcross
"In his latest incarnation, Street Freaks, Terry Brooks spins yet another tale of heroism, treachery, and intrigue. This coming-of-age story set in a landscape like no other reminded me of the best of Cory Doctorow and Neil Gaiman, yet still imbued with Terry Brooks's unique and cinematic style. I'm not sure what I'm looking forward to more: the sequel...or seeing this book explode onto the big screen." --James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Demon Crown
"Terry Brooks' can rightfully be called The Godfather of modern fantasy. I proudly count myself among the ranks of authors who would never have had a career if not for his inspiration. Nearly every author in the genre must confess to standing on his shoulders." --Myke Cole, author of The Armored Saint
"If Tolkien is the grandfather of modern fantasy, Terry Brooks is its favorite uncle." --Peter V. Brett, author of The Core
"I can't even begin to count how many of Terry Brooks's books I've read (and reread) over the years. From Shannara to Landover, his work was a huge part of my childhood." --Patrick Rothfuss, author of The Name of the Wind
