From Publishers Weekly

Jul 18, 2011 – In her foray into middle-grade fiction, McMann (Cryer's Cross) delivers a fun mix of magic and science with a retro SF novel whose setting echoes classic artificial dystopias of the 1960s like Logan's Run and Make Room! Make Room! In the city of Quill, all signs of creativity are shunned, and any children who so much as sing or draw are declared "Unwanted" when they turn 13 and sent off to be killed. When Alex is culled from his family and sent to die, he is surprised to discover that the Unwanteds are actually taken to a hidden city called Artim , where they are not only trained in the traditional arts, but also in the magic that these arts unlock. McMann juggles a handful of point-of-view characters nicely (focusing largely on Alex), showing their fear and wonder as they learn more about their world. The subplots including young romance and murderous conspiracies are skillfully interwoven, and if some of Quill's harshness borders on caricature (the city makes Sparta seem decadent), it serves the story well. Ages 8 12.

Customer Reviews

This is the best

This is a great book!!

Sad story

It's sad that I bought the 7 first chapters ($2.99 each) and the rest are not available any more. Do I really have to buy the whole book just to read the rest??? But still love Cassandra Clare for these amazing books!!!

God it's awful

I've read every book of Cassandra's and pre-bought this one. I couldn't even finish the book, which I can say has never happened to me. Some of the stories are downright juvenile in their writing style, and feel amateurish. Cassandra, shame on you for selling out. You should give your readers back their money...
