Editorial Reviews

Review

"Readers will be spellbound by Miri’s misadventures and her relatable coming-of-age . . . strongly recommended for upper middle grade/YA fans of the genre who prefer magical solutions over weapons and violence."

School Library Journal, starred review

"Lackey gives Miri’s narration a light, contemporary voice that harmonizes with a plethora of realistic detail about daily life in the pseudo-medieval-European setting."―
BCCB

"A gentle “Sleeping Beauty”–inspired tale of teens training to defend a baby princess."―
Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the Hunter Series:
 

* "Joyeaux's narration is spellbinding, the prose easily balancing the technology of the future with the tradition of the past. Captivating, dynamic, well-paced, and thrilling."―
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Spirituality, psychic abilities, propaganda, magic, monsters, and mayhem make this a book with a dozen hooks to snag readers and win Lackey even more fans."―
Booklist

"Lackey successfully mixes dystopia and fantasy in this series opener . . . The novel is exciting, entirely entertaining, and sure to please her fans."―
Publishers Weekly
