    " Well written and entertaining, but it didn't chime with me, maybe I'm too old, maybe I've read too much SF to see familiar ideas as new. Definitely a good children's story so don't think I'm knocking the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abby | 2/6/2014

    " The world has warmed and water covers most of the planet. Many people have gone back to a pre-industrial state. A young girl and a boy from opposite walkes of life try to stop what's left of England and Scotland from going to war. A wonderful and complex read. I wish I had the sequel right now! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 2/6/2014

    " A very satisfying fantasy, with an interesting tech-y, postapocalyptic twist. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandst | 2/4/2014

    " Wow. It's annoying how incredibly one-dimensional the adult characters are. It's like the only way the author is capable of making the story go on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeri Polowchena | 1/28/2014

    " So i checked out this book at the library as an audio book. The book started off a bit strang, but by the end i was hooked. Had many ups and downs and ended at a spot that will lead me to read the next book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Warnie B. | 1/25/2014

    " I feel kinda bad about it, but...I just really didn't enjoy this one much at all. It started out fairly interesting, but somewhere along the way it got to feel like...a little too much, maybe, what with the super special cat, and the old tech AI (I hated that thing), and the girl-pretending-to-be-a-boy thing. And none of the characters ever grew on me. I like the general idea behind the friction among the various groups involved in the war at the end of the book, but something about the story felt too choppy and unconvincing to me. I had to force myself to finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mindy | 1/17/2014

    " This was a middle school level read but I really enjoyed it! There was probably a bit to much violence for younger readers but older middle schoolers could probably handle it. Great story of survivors as they struggle in a world much different from today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 1/12/2014

    " I'm reading this thanks to an advance reader's copy from my library. This is the first book out by this author, and it definitely has potential! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/7/2014

    " Loved it! Drowned world, raiders (or pirates), a spunky heroine orphan and her sea cat and a cluless raider boy with a heart of not gold but maybe brass. Good for all adventure, fantasy, scfi readers age 4th grade and aboout. Note there is some violence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adia | 12/21/2013

    " Pretty good, I had mixed feelings about the end though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura Gardner | 12/19/2013

    " While I loved the first half of this book, the end was far too violent and convoluted. Raider's Ransom is set in the future, but in a future after the Collapse...so there is a dystopian element. I would have liked more exposition of that idea and a little less bloodshed, frankly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 luiloth | 10/1/2013

    " Now everyone will want a sea-cat! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 7/18/2013

    " For those who loved the Hunger Games series this one is a win. It has a little bit of everything: espionage, pirates, damsels in distress,and a future England that it terrifying but all to easy to imagine. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christopher Gordon | 7/5/2013

    " It has charm but I was left thinking fine but so what. Not interested in any sequels. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vicki | 4/18/2013

    " Interesting idea, but slow and a little boring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ryan | 5/14/2012

    " GREAT! One of my top 5 even though it started out slow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 5/11/2012

    " Interesting plot hook, but mediocre writing and setting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 8/11/2011

    " At times I liked it at others I didn't care. I like this post-apocalyptic Great Britain world where the polar caps have melted, most of London is flooded and there are no computers. I listened to the audio book so I might have enjoyed it more if I had read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jordan Funke | 8/2/2011

    " A post-apocolyptic world that feels like the past. Simple life, pirates, adventure. It is fun to see the artifacts from our time as confusing to them. An artificial intelligence device accompanies a girl on a mission to save her father. Cute, but hard to get into. "

    " im already hating this book: its a school read....
