'One of the best sci-fi novels I've ever read.' --Ted Kosmatka, author of The Games and Prophet of Bones
'A brilliant, deeply felt book full of strangeness and beauty. A post-apocalyptic adventure, that's also a love letter to Seattle. I don't know anyone who better captures the way it feels when the world suddenly shifts beneath our feet. This book disturbed me in the way all great science fiction disturbs.' --Daryl Gregory, author of Pandemonium and The Devil s Alphabet

It felt that it wasn't as rounded as it could have been, the pace was lacking in places and for me, the principle characters didn't have enough hooks to make me really associate with them let alone care about their fates. All round I did like the idea but for me this title just didn't work the way I wanted it to.
