Horn Book Review

Generations after a nuclear holocaust, Obernewtyn is a safe haven for mutant Misfits with psychic talents. Elspeth (Obernewtyn) must leave the region's safety to pursue her destiny as savior of animals and destroyer of lost apocalyptic weapons. Though Carmody's cast of characters (many underdeveloped) is dizzyingly vast, her world-building is imaginative, substantial, and absorbing. [Review covers these Obernewtyn Chronicles titles: Ashling, The Farseekers, The Keeping Place, The Stone Key, and Wavesong.] (c) Copyright 2010.
