Dread Nation (Ireland) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
(Starred review.) [A]lternate-history horror tale… First in a duology, Ireland’s gripping novel is teeming with monsters—most of them human. Abundant action, thoughtful worldbuilding, and a brave, smart, and skillfully drawn cast (Ages 14–Up).
Publishers Weekly


(Starred review.) Slavery comes to a halt when the dead on Civil War battlefields begin to rise and eat their compatriots.… Ireland skillfully works in the different forms of enslavement, mental and physical, into a complex and engaging story (Gr. 9 & Up). —Desiree Thomas, Worthington Library, OH
School Library Journal


(Starred review.) Ireland delivers a necessary, subversive, and explosive novel with her fantasy-laced alternate history that does the all-important work of exploring topics of oppression, racism, and slavery whi…. Brilliant and gut-wrenching.
Booklist


(Starred review.) All the classic elements of the zombie novel are present, but Ireland takes the genre up a notch with her deft exploration of racial oppression…. With a shrewd, scythe-wielding protagonist of color …an exciting must-read (Ages 14-adult).
