Summary

An enthralling adventure set in a strange world on the high seas.
Petrel is an outcast on the ancient ship, an icebreaker, that has been following the same course for 300 years. In that time, the ship's crew has forgotten its original purpose and broken into three warring tribes. Everyone has a tribe except Petrol. Nicknamed the Nothing Girl, Petrel has been ostracized ever since her parents were thrown overboard as punishment for a terrible crime.
But Petrel is a survivor. She lives in the ship's darkest corners, and trusts no one except two large gray rats - that is, until a mysterious boy is discovered barely alive on an iceberg, and brought onto the ship. He claims to have forgotten even his name. The tribes don't trust strangers, so Petrel hides the boy, hoping he will be her friend. What she doesn't know is that the ship guards a secret - a secret the boy has been sent to destroy.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The voyage around the southern ice cap has lasted 300 years. During that time, three antagonistic tribes have evolved aboard the icebreaker: the officers, the cooks, and the engineers. Only the outcast girl Petrel doesn't belong to a tribe and has no friends except for two sentient rats, Mister Smoke and Missus Slink. This is the way it has always been, but things begin to change when a nameless boy with a secret is discovered on an iceberg and brought on board. Who is he, and who or what is the demon he seeks? Can Petrel trust him, and will the two become friends and maybe even allies? The questions are tantalizing and the answers elusive in this first volume of a proposed trilogy. The novel is not perfect: credulity is often stretched to the breaking point, and problems are sometimes too neatly resolved. Nevertheless, the story is suspenseful, satisfying, and sufficiently well imagined, so many readers will eagerly look forward to the next installment.--Cart, Michael Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Tanner (the Keepers trilogy) offers an unusual take on the post-apocalyptic genre with this chilly tale of life board a massive ship that has been traversing the frozen seas for three centuries, ever since the Anti-Machinist movement caused the collapse of society. Having long forgotten their original purpose, the residents of the icebreaker Oyster have separated into three tribes that exist in an uneasy state of low-level conflict. Bullied and shunned, 13-year-old Petrel belongs to no tribe, but when the Oyster finds a mysterious boy stranded on an iceberg, she helps to protect him; they become unlikely allies as the ship descends into chaos and open warfare. Tanner's portrayal of a culture that has lost its way, as well as conflicts between science and faith, provides a complex, thought-provoking backdrop to Petrel's tale of self-reliance and Fin's crisis of loyalties. These interior journeys are just one part of a fast-paced adventure featuring talking rats, a rusting mazelike setting, and growing tension, which leaves things wide open for the next installment of the Hidden trilogy.
