Product description


I could seriously picture everything that was happening like a movie in my head. I was hanging on every word and dreading the end of each chapter. -- Gina, Behind the Pages

The breath-taking escapes, fight scenes, gut-wrenching interrogations, emotional encounters, and sheer inventiveness of the plot crackles with excitement and energy. -- Bookrapt, Bookrapt

This is another story where the preceding volume has stayed with me, because it was such an innovative and well planned fantasy. It is a tight, beautifully constructed story from a skilled and imaginative author. -- 103.1FM Grafton, 103.1FM Grafton

The plot is exciting, intense and constantly moving, with excellent character relationships and a kick ass heroine at its center. I loved all of the scientific twists and can’t wait for the next book! -- Happy Indulgence, Happy Indulgence

I fell in love, then fell apart as the storyline completely unravelled before me. It was glorious and beautifully written. This series gathers strength with each installment, setting the scene for Evie and the spic showdown against those who believe they can control her. They're sorely mistaken. It's epic and demands to be read. -- Diva Book Nerd, Diva Book Nerd

Craw gets everything right. The action is exhilarating, the reveals are shocking, the quiet moments are poignant, and the emotional highs and lows are powerful and lasting. -- Children's Books Daily, Children's Books Daily

Rachael’s books are young adult sci-fi at its best and they can stand proud beside the likes of Hunger Games, Divergent and The Maze Runner. -- My Best Friends are Books, My Best Friends are Books

Stray was a fantastic sequel. It was everything Spark was, and more. Basically, this book was just perfect. -- Cassie the Weird, Cassie the Weird

Stray is a tightly-written progression from Spark that climaxes with a bloodied, gut-wrenching finale that promises to leave you looking at the final few chapters through blurry eyes. Shield, the final book in the trilogy, promises to be one hell of a ride. -- Liz McShane, Liz McShane

I loved Spark, so I had high expectations for Stray: these Rachael Craw has met and exceeded. Fiercely emotional and compelling, Stray left me desperate for the series finale, Shield. -- Imaginary Misadventure, Imaginary Misadventure
