A completely bizarre series that defies being tied to any one genre. It would probably fall loosely into fantasy, but with strong science fiction and dystopian elements that give it a very dark edge for children's literature (think some of the darkest and most intense moments in Harry Potter, but in an apocalyptic world) The characters are all interesting and completely creative, but it's the gripping pace and peril that really sets this book apart. At times, the story became so intense I had to take a break from reading to re-engage with reality. I completely LOVED this series.
