Reviews

"What a story! Kenneth Oppel has written a thriller so exciting that the pages might well have been printed with adrenaline." -Wall Street Journal

"The book rockets off, and Oppel never eases up on the gas." -The New York Times

"A phenomenal kickoff to an enthralling trilogy. The conclusion is especially powerful, delivering an overwhelming roller-coaster ride of relief and horror." -School Library Journal, starred review

"Wilderness survival and alien invasion combine for an exciting page-turner." -Booklist

"Action-thriller led by three characters whose backstories continue to unfurl with intriguing detail... will leave readers satisfied." -The Bulletin

"In this fast-paced thriller, Oppel spins a richly drawn, incredibly fascinating world. Beginning with the brilliantly unique premise of a botanical alien invasion, the plot unravels satisfyingly, building readers' curiosity by creating 10 new questions for every answer given. A thrilling alien-invasion novel based on a chillingly nefarious premise." -Kirkus Reviews

"BLOOM is a lightning-paced adventure that grabs hold of you and doesn't let go. This book is ridiculously fun ... and by 'fun' I mean terrifying!" -Jonathan Auxier, author of The Night Gardener

"Absolutely riveting. Superb storytelling, great characters and an environmental crisis - readers will hardly be able to wait for the second book in the trilogy."-The Globe and Mail

"Steadily adds new horrors, potently escalating the story's pace, stakes, and anxiety as the plants crowd out food crops, explosively release allergy-causing pollen, and begin exhibiting carnivorous tendencies." -Publishers Weekly
