Robertson’s final instalment in this excellent trilogy does not disappoint. He manages to take on important and timely themes while always keeping the reader engaged, engrossed and entertained. Fans will root for this believable cast of characters as they finally get to the truth of the mysterious goings-on at Wounded Sky. I can’t wait to see more from this fine author!
—Susin Nielsen, Governor General’s Award-winning author

Robertson’s trademark wit, grasp of superhero conventions, and skill in telling own-voices stories set in First Nations communities are all on display in the Reckoner books, which leave YA readers shaken and exhilarated.

Once again, award-winning author David A. Robertson, a member of Norway House Cree Nation, achieves a fantastic balance between the development of the characters and the pacing of the story to create a highly engaging read.
—Sara Florence Davidson for BCTF magazine

This final volume in the Reckoner trilogy (beginning with Strangers, rev. 5/18) has many of the same elements as the first two: a deeply rooted sense of family and community within Wounded Sky First Nation, a fictional Cree nation in Canada; an abundance of pop culture references…; self-conscious metafictionality through asides to characters and readers; and action—lots of action.
