Officially, the book is listed as for readers age 12 and up. I think "The Maze Runner" is a good litmus test. It’s about on the same level in terms of intensity, suspense and violence. I don’t really think about age all too much when I write — I just try to create something that I’d personally love to read, and I’m an adult. Each book might ratchet up the intensity a bit — we shall see!
