- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2011 October #1
The mark on the back of Luke's wrist looks like an animalâa wolf, perhaps? That is not the only thing about this Abenaki Indian that is unusual. He has exceptional strength and speed, and electronic devices like cell phones don't work for himâwhat's going on here? And what does this have to do with Maxco, the giant research facility on the edge of town? Readers will find out as they meet Luke's single-parent father, whose mysterious missions have ended in a miasma of alcohol and drug abuse; as they encounter the seven mysterious dark-glasses-wearing Russian students in his high school; as they enter the deserted, possibly haunted mansion that harbors a dark secret . . . and, well, there's more. Drawing on Native American traditions and his own lively imagination, Bruchac has written a genre-blending novel that combines horror, science fiction, and adventure into a satisfying whole. The fast pace will hold readers' attention to the end, whichâyesâleaves the door open to the possibility of a sequel. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
