Editorial Reviews

Review

“Duncan’s knack for character development shines through as Tempest is steadily exposed to the darker side of AgraStar...well-paced and intelligently written...A thoughtful and sensitive exploration of corrupt powers and personal responsibility, especially in today’s stormy political climate.” -- Kirkus Reviews

“Tempest is portrayed as strong and confident...Fans of dystopian fiction should find the premise and characters compelling.” -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

Praise for SALVAGE: “Duncan makes an excellent debut . . . A powerfully immersive story that uses its far-future SF premise to thoughtfully explore gender politics.” --
Publishers Weekly

“Salvage is the book I’ve been waiting for―kick-ass, brilliant, feminist science fiction. Watch out, world. Alexandra Duncan has arrived.” -- Stephanie Perkins, internationally bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door

Praise for SOUND: “Meaningful and well-wrought…Unpredictable plot, vivid settings, and a queer, dark-skinned black girl as a protagonist in far-future science fiction: essential.” --
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Duncan’s ecofocused dystopia digs into ethically rocky terrain as it questions the applications of genetic engineering and modifications...Filled with eye-opening, adventurous passages, Duncan’s dystopia has deep roots.” -- Booklist Online

“Readers will find Tempest’s story engaging and believable as the plot line twists and turns from survival story to conspiracy theory. The science fiction elements are strong...Readers who also enjoyed the “Maze Runner Series” by James Dashner...will nosh on this title.” -- School Library Journal
--This text refers to the hardcover edition.
