This is an auction for SHADE'S CHILDREN, by Garth Nix.

"Earth has been taken over by the terrible Overlords in this "amply imagined" science fiction/quest story. The twists and turns of the action-filled plot are compelling."
- Publisher's Weekly review:

"Shade's Children involves a world decimated by warfare, warfare committed by enigmatic beings called the Overlords, whose sole purpose is to make war. On a child's fourteenth birthday they are taken to a facility where their brains, muscles and other organs are used to make the Overlords' death machines. At the center of the storm is a creature known only as Shade, who gives shelter and help to the few children lucky enough to escape the Overlords. However, they also conduct strikes in an attempt to destroy these things that have taken over their world, and as they come closer to succeeding in their goal, Shade seems to become more and more like the enemy they have to destroy. In short, this is a wonderfully written book you will be remember long after you have finished it. However, as noted, it is *not* something for the kiddies - Shade's Children is the stuff of nightmares. If you are ready, however, there are few books I've read better than this."
