Praise For…


**STARRED REVIEW**
"The dynamics of friendship, nuanced LGBTQIA+ characters, and political story lines will encourage readers to read to the very end. Soria’s stand-alone fantasy novel will resonate with fans of Mackenzi Lee’s The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue and Veronica Roth’s “Divergent” series."

— School Library Journal

"The premise, based around "infallible prophecies," raises interesting questions about free will . . . This is a thrilling adventure story."

— Kirkus Reviews

"This tale of friendship, political intrigue, power, and love is a delight. Soria (Iron Cast, 2016) gives readers characters to invest in, and a situation to trigger conversation without the overblown, overinvolved writing of some fantasies."

— Booklist

"The four protagonists are drawn in strong lines, their personalities bold and distinct with some swoony romance between the two boys and welcome diversity regarding body shape and sexuality . . . readers will be able to follow the twists and turns through to the satisfying conclusion."

— The Horn Book

"Get lost in this strange, dark world where a really smart girl and her friends may save the future, or the past."

— School Library Connection

"The diverse characters—including those who are bisexual, asexual, and gay—have rich backgrounds; many scenes, especially those set on and around a creepy underground lake, are harrowing; and the emotional finale is truly shocking. Fans of dark, character-driven fantasy will find much to enjoy in this novel by Soria (Iron Cast), which raises interesting questions about fate, free will, and sacrifice."

— Publishers Weekly

“The unique fantasy world, featuring divination and the erasure of memories, poses some compelling questions about agency . . . the witty rapport of the teens in the face of foreseen dangers and uncertain outcomes pairs quick laughs with fast-paced action.”

— The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
