Children of Icarus

It’s Clara who’s desperate to enter the labyrinth and it’s Clara who’s bright, strong, and fearless enough to take on any challenge. It’s no surprise when she’s chosen. But so is the girl who has always lived in her shadow. Together they enter. Within minutes, they are torn apart forever. Now the girl who has never left the city walls must fight to survive in a living nightmare, where one false turn with who to trust means a certain dead end.

Reviews Book Report - Adrian Meyers

"ICARUS was, easily, the best book I have read in 2016. I would venture to say that it is the best “dystopian” novel I have read, ever. . . .I truly cannot recommend this novel more highly or more passionately. Every sentence was well crafted, each twist surprising, each moment more horrifying than the one before. Bravo to Ms. Smith, and I look forward to reading more of her works (and shoving this book on everyone I know)." - Book Report

VOYA - Lisa Martinci

"The protagonist, never named, does not start out as heroic or even assertive, and not until numerous shocks and a training montage near the end of the volume does she start to find some welcome determination. She rarely speaks due to social anxiety and difficulty dealing with her new reality. This differentiates Icarus from most other series. . . .The ending builds up to a solid turning point, promising more action and satisfying answers in the future." - VOYA
