    *Starred Review* When Revna lost her legs, her father stole living metal to make her prosthetics. That got him arrested and their family demoted to second-class citizens; now, Revna works in a factory, harnessing a legal form of magic to aid the Union's war effort. When she accesses the Weave, the illegal magic, and is spotted by the Union's spy network, she never expects to be recruited. Linné's infamous war-general father thinks she's at school, but she's disguised herself as a boy to join the army. When she's caught, she's recruited into the same program as Revna: a women's military unit where girls use the Weave to fly two-man planes in a fight against an enemy with vastly superior weapons. When Revna and Linné are paired together, neither is thrilled; hard-edged Linné has made few friends among the girls, and she sees Revna, with her prosthetics, as a liability. But if they can't work together, they have no chance at all. Though set in a fantasy world, Bartlett's high-concept debut takes its inspiration from the WWII-era Soviet Night Witches. Rich characterizations and an enemy that, while it looms in the background, never feels quite as threatening as the country the girls are fighting for complete a story set against the bright, brutal backdrop of war. A breathless series starter from a new voice to watch. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
