Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dividing the tale between two versions of Chiku Ayinya—clones separated by vast distances, but linked by shared history and entangled memories—Reynolds shows he is more than adept at weaving the two stories together. Avoiding the usual weaknesses of middle volumes in trilogies, On the Steel Breeze serves to heighten the anticipation for the final book and is an entertaining read in its own right.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Reynolds’s depth of imagination, adeptness with creating multidimensional characters, and brisk pacing are again in evidence in his second Poseidon’s Children SF novel.” Publishers Weekly
