A beautiful and fierce read.

Silver's writing carries stark and precise poetry. This is evident in her description of the landscape. It is evident in Ares' inner thoughts and feelings.

Every character in this book feels real. There is not one drop of unnecessary sentimentality, which I was afraid this book is going to have, knowing its subject matter. Silver does not judge. She lets the readers decide the questions of right/wrong and good/evil.

This book depicts the difficulties of adolescence and 'growing up' better than any young adult novel ever could, in my opinion.
