"Despite extensive closing notes, readers unfamiliar with that first outing are likely to flounder, but Skye's world-building is inventive enough to carry the tale at least a little farther." Kirkus Reviews
"The ending sets the stage for yet another outing. Fans...might be able to make heads or tails of the story, but everyone else will be totally lost." School Library Journal
