Publishers Weekly

 

“General readers as well as Archer fans will enjoy this unforgettable tale, which abounds with cliff-hangers that propel its intriguing and intricate plot.”

Library Journal (starred review)

 

“What appears at the outset to be a straightforward coming-of-age tale becomes, by the end, a saga of power, betrayal, and bitter hatred. The novel ends on a deliberately dark note, setting the stage for the sequel…An outstanding effort from a reliable veteran.”

Booklist (starred review)

 

“By the time you make it to the last page, the drama of Harry Clifton’s young life takes the reader to the edge of the cliff, where they must hang until the next Clifton Chronicle.”
