From Printz Award winner and National Book Award finalist Paolo Bacigalupi comes the third companion novel in the dystopic Ship Breaker universe. Set in a future swamped by rising seas, depleted resources, corporate government, and civil war, this novel stars the most provocative, most talked-about, most controversial character from Paolo Bacigalupi's highly acclaimed books Ship Breaker and The Drowned Cities, and pulls no punches in exploring the gray areas between what it means to be human--and animal.

An attack on the Drowned Cities leaves Tool, a part-human, part-animal super-soldier with heightened physical abilities, on the run. His pack of compatriots is destroyed, and his only allies are humans whom he can't afford to trust. But now he must resist his bioengineered impulse of loyalty toward his masters and embark on an all-out war against those who have enslaved him.

Review:

*"Bacigalupi's environmentally ravaged world remains both richly described and terrifying, his characters diverse and complex. Through Tool, he explores free will and the consequences of humans playing at being gods. ...Well worth the wait."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review


"Bacigalupi masterfully examine[s] larger questions about humanity, genetic engineering, loyalty, freedom, violence, and survival. This striking novel...is an all-too-timely reminder that humans' actions have the power to change the world for better or worse."
--The Horn Book


"Makes readers think about what it means to be human, the price of genetic engineering, and the inhumanity of the corporations who put profit above all else."
--Booklist

"A cleverly described, intricate, and equally desolate world. Fans of the series will love it, and...new readers will quickly understand the world."
--BCCB

*"A strong, entertaining continuation of Bacigalupi's postapocalyptic series."--School Library Journal, starred review


*"Tool is at center stage at last as readers move through Bacigalupi's exploration of the intricate relationships connecting hunter and prey, master and enslaved, human and monster. Masterful."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review


"Bacigalupi's action scenes are brilliantly cinematic, powering the pacing with breathtaking superhero stunts. Tool, as ever, is a character impossible to forget."--Booklist

"Bacigalupi's future earth is brilliantly imagined and its genesis anchored in contemporary issues...The characters are layered and complex, and their almost unthinkable actions and choices seem totally credible. Vivid, brutal, and thematically rich, this captivating title is sure to win teen fans for the award-winning Bacigalupi." --Booklist (starred review)

"A stellar YA debut...the book's message never overshadows the storytelling, action-packed pacing, or intricate world-building." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
