The story's got all the classic elements of swashbuckling adventure tales like The Count of Monte Cristo. ... Beautiful writing, intricate plotting, and breathless reveals—plus several plucky female leads—make this a must-read.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

French author de Fombelle has written a brilliant, wonderfully exciting story of flight and pursuit, filled with colorful characters and head-scratching mystery. As the novel proceeds, the suspense is ratcheted up to breathtaking levels as the boy remains only one step ahead of his relentless pursuers. This reminds even the most jaded readers of the abiding pleasures of a compelling, page-turning story.

Playwright de Fombelle is a master of the perfectly honed scene, and the action speeds by with theatrical flair and crafty sleight of hand that will be particularly appreciated by teens who relish foreign and indie films. ... This intriguing imported thriller demands a sequel.
