Praise from the 1997 Saskatchewan Book Award judges…
“A wonderfully entertaining, imaginative, and well-crafted book for young adults…This book is well-paced and controlled and never becomes moralistic… A great read!… Highly recommended.”
…the Regina Sun…
“This is a complicated bit of writing. The characters are involved in a variety of strong relationships which help create the drama…in this story, Weyburn is not a quiet, little city. The writing is fast-paced and readers will be amazed at just how wild Weyburn gets.”- Jocolyn Caton, The Regina Sun, March 8, 1998. Read the complete review
“A good story…Teens new to SF/fantasy will like this one.” – Gail E. Roberts
“A nice little fantasy/teen novel which blends the two fairly well. Recommended to anyone who likes Nicole Luiken’s books.”
…and a young reader in Glasgow, Scotland!
