Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A refreshing, ingenious hardcover debut." —Kirkus

"Suspenseful and entrancing."—Library Journal

"Finder is a delightful bit of alchemistry that deftly blends the detective and fantasy genres. The characters get under your skin, and a world in which the young and disaffected are willing to risk death in a mad bid for redemption is oddly familiar. Bull's delicate touch allows her to exploit the crossover genre with particular success."—School Library Journal

"An effortless read.Everything, from scenes of suspense to scenes of high emotion, is deftly done."—The Washington Post

"[A] delightful fantasy." —Denver Post

Cathy Chauvette
The characters get under your skin, and a world in which the young and disaffected are willing to risk death in a mad bid for redemption is oddly familiar in spite of the setting. Bull's delicate touch allows her to exploit the genre crossover with particular success—as in the best of both genres, the tragedy seeps through the thrills, humor, and relationships so slowly that one finds the tears on one's cheek with a shock.
