"This strong entry into the high/low Retribution trilogy zings by with the pace of a parkour freerunner...[Graves delivers a] pulse-racing adrenaline rush."
VOYA - December 1, 2015
"These interconnected narratives are page-turning reads, offering adventure, intrigue, and satisfying retribution. Jace, Josie, and Raven are fiercely independent, clever, and intelligent protagonists; each has a rich backstory and an engaging narrative voice that hooks readers from the beginning. Each compact narrative can stand on its own but also incorporates references to the other two, lending a multiple-perspective aspect to the story as a whole. While each book offers a quick resolution, readers will connect quickly to the characters and find their plights both compelling and entertaining. The series tackles such topics as truth and justice, integrity and honesty, and survival. It will appeal to a wide range of readers, including reluctant readers who need a quick hook."

“As a book blogger and with a love of books, I read ALL the time. So when you find something that’s different for you and enjoyable, it’s kind of like finding a rare gem. It’s exciting and you want to tell other people about it, without over selling it and hyping the book too much. Exposed was one of my gems.”
