"McGee once again blends a Christian message within a horrific science fiction plot . . . death, torture, and confusing love triangles." --"Booklist"
"McGee blends the determination of faith, the malevolence of those who extol power over decency, and the assertion of individual integrity in a humane glimpse at youthful courage." --"Publisher's Weekly"
