• "DeBruce sustains the mystery by periodically using a second narrator (other than Hana), known as the Nomad. The sometimes violent action moves quickly, with exciting chases and unexpected twists." — Kirkus Reviews
• "Despite being a short, easy read, the book is packed full of action and adventure, murder, and teenage flirting, and it has a dynamic plot, along with well-rounded characters, that easily carries the story from one mysterious moment to the next. There is even, to the readers' delight, a mysterious character who is marvelously difficult to figure out and is revealed at just the right moment, with jaw-dropping impact." — Tammy Snyder, Clarion Reviews
