Reviews

  • A Game of Thrones meets X-Men in this 14th-century fantasy from Marie Lu (the Legend trilogy), in a world where 'fear is power.' ... The overriding epic fantasy will keep readers hooked for book two, which teases to be a game-changer. Bring it on.

  • Original and sobering, Adelina is an antihero of nigh-unremitting darkness: an unusual young woman in the mold of such archetypes as Lucifer, Macbeth, and Darth Vader

    Kirkus Reviews
  • Adelina's power is that she can create illusions so detailed they seem real; it's a craft in which both she and Lu are expertly skilled
