About the Author
Praise For Boundary…
Praise for Relic
"Heather Terrell excavates a richly realized and adventurous world from the iced-over wreck of our own."
—William Alexander, New York Times bestseller and 2012 National Book Award winner
“Fans of The Hunger Games will devour this book.”
—School Library Journal
“With threads taken from The Hunger Games, The Giver, and other dystopian novels, Terrell spins her own story, which has plenty of adventure, some unanswered questions, and a dash of romance... The way relics—iPhones, guns, even makeup—affect the story adds an ironic touch.”
"Adult author Terrell, in her books for teens, weaves fresh complexity... with smart, thoughtful, and resourceful heroines."
"Part post-apocalyptic fiction and part high fantasy, Relic is the beginning of a trilogy that is written artfully and with a voice you will not soon forget. Delicately weaving in elements of Inuit culture as well as elements you might find in Game of Thrones, Heather Terrell creates a world that is as intricate as it is icy. The intrigue and mystery make it a page-turner, and the rich and complex characters make it hard to forget. I cannot wait for the sequel!"
—E. Kristen Anderson, Editor of Dear Teen Me
"Technology is a fragile thing and another Dark Age could be closer than you think.... the world built in Relic is unique and has a rich allegorical quality."
—Pittsburgh Post Gazette
"A suspenseful novel that’s as smart and well written as it is inventive, original, and surprising."
—M. J. Rose, author of The Reincarnationist series
