Staff Reviews


Fans of Marie Lu will be well pleased with book one of the Skyhunter duology. It’s classic Marie! For those not familiar with her writing, here’s a lightning-paced dystopian fantasy with a dynamic balance of characters that will appeal to both guys and gals. I’m intrigued with Talin’s world—I want to know more about it! And the fight scenes rival those of a Marvel movie. I’m curious to see how this will wrap up.

Description


A broken world.
An overwhelming evil.
A team of warriors ready to strike back.


#1 New York Times-bestselling author Marie Lu is back with an adrenaline-laced novel about the lengths one warrior will go to fight for freedom and those she loves.

Talin is a Striker, a member of an elite fighting force that stands as the last defense for the only free nation in the world: Mara.

A refugee, Talin knows firsthand the horrors of the Federation, a world-dominating war machine responsible for destroying nation after nation with its terrifying army of mutant beasts known only as Ghosts.

But when a mysterious prisoner is brought from the front to Mara's capital, Talin senses there’s more to him than meets the eye. Is he a spy from the Federation? What secrets is he hiding?

Only one thing is clear: Talin is ready to fight to the death alongside her fellow Strikers for the only homeland she has left . . . with or without the boy who might just be the weapon to save—or destroy—them all.

Loyalty is life.

Praise For…


A New York Times and Publishers Weekly besteller

"Cinematically imagined... An exciting, layered, action-filled tale." - Kirkus

"Paradoxes abound and readers will glory in them all." - Booklist

"Suspense and high-action fights make this plot-driven story both fast-paced and brutal." - School Library Journal

"Lu (The Kingdom of Back and Legend) creates a devastating, war-torn world, built upon the wreckage of a technologically advanced society. Readers will eagerly await a follow-up to this engrossing dystopian novel, which searingly interrogates traumas of war, immigration, and imperialism." - Publishers Weekly

"Lu ably balances lightning-fast action and stirring battles with romance, weaving in enough bits of cultural history to give the story some grounding... This hearty but small group of Talin, Red, and a few more allies face formidable odds in the next outing, and readers will likely eagerly await news on how they fare." - The Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books (BCCB)
