Austin American Statesman "Summer Pick" and a "Best New Release" by Independent Publisher

"Featuring strong characters and crisp writing, this is a solid first entry in a series worth keeping an eye on."
Publishers Weekly

"Compelling, complex, and cleverly intertwined with an exhilarating love story."

"Time Zero is a compelling, unexpected, thrilling read that elevates the young adult genre with smart and ground-breaking social commentary. As the strong-willed heroine who navigates this dangerous and mysterious world, Mina is that unique blend of brains and emotion who delights us and surprises us at every turn."
--Elizabeth Banks, star of The Hunger Games

"Time Zero is a compelling, inventive, and richly layered book―one that will appeal both to adult and young adult readers. On top of being an absorbing story, Time Zero is also a cautionary meditation on religious extremism, intolerance, violence, and the effects of fanaticism on the human psyche."
―Tim O'Brien, National Book Award-winning author of The Things They Carried

"Riveting and refreshing . . . Cohagan's futuristic, dystopian Manhattan is expertly rendered. We find suspense and scary moments at every turn, and it's hard to put this book down."
