Reviews

"The concept is compulsively gruesome ... Price develops her plot and characters with tight, punchy writing and a sure, confident touch. There must be a movie in this ..." The Daily Mail "A bona fide page-turner." MTV.com "Readers who have been waiting for a worthy successor to Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games will find it here. Dystopian sci-fi at its best." Los Angeles Times "This bleak dystopian novel makes a compelling read ... Grabs the reader's attention from the first page" Booktrust "Price is a gifted writer." -- Lionel Shriver
