About the Author

Sean Williams is a #1 New York Times bestselling writer for adults and the author of Twinmaker and Crashland, as well as coauthor of the Troubletwisters series with Garth Nix. As a resident of South Australia--which he reports is a lovely place a long way away from the rest of the world--Sean has often dreamed of stepping into a booth and being somewhere else, instantly. This has led to a fascination with the social, psychological, and moral implications of such technology. When not pondering such weighty matters, Sean can generally be found eating chocolate (actually, he eats chocolate when pondering these matters, too).

Reviews

"In the masterful hands of Williams, the technology, which has eerie parallels to contemporary life, provides a solid platform for great storytelling, and teens will revel in the drama, Clair's tenacity, and the memorable characters who discover that their utopia isn't all it's cracked up to be." -- Booklist (starred review)

"The dangers, casualties and well-written action scenes keep tensions high. Williams marries accessibly explored moral ramifications of future technologies-a hallmark of mature science fiction-with a strong, capable teen heroine and heart-pounding action." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Compelling...handily juggles ethical debates, swift action, and a well-developed setting." -- The Horn Book

"Williams spins a sprawling and complex tale, built on an impressively well-constructed premise and held together with intrigue and tension." -- Publishers Weekly

"Give this one to teens who enjoy action-packed books such as Veronica Roth's "Divergent" trilogy" -- School Library Journal

"Fast-paced" -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

"TWINMAKER took my breath away. A triumph of thrilling action and vivid imagination." -- Alison Goodman, author of EON and EONA

"A mind-blowing adventure about what it means to be human, and what it means to find ourselves." -- Scott Westerfeld, author of UGLIES and LEVIATHAN

"A gripping YA thriller, coming of age and love story that transports the reader to a future that looks a whole lot better than it really is ... Highly Recommended." -- Garth Nix, author of the Old Kingdom series

"TWINMAKER asks smart questions without easy answers, and presents a future so simultaneously wonderful and terrible you can only believe in it. A thrilling, existential head trip worthy of my favorite anime, I couldn't stop reading this book. More importantly, I couldn't stop thinking about it." -- Alaya Dawn Johnson, author of THE SUMMER PRINCE

"Twinmaker is a gripping scifi story of friendship, identity + accidentally destroying the universe." -- Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling author of These Broken Stars and Illuminae
