Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Niven’s sure hand with details opens the story up in unexpected directions…I hope the inevitable sequel maintains this admirable balance.” New York Times
“Niven describes a believable alien world very much like Earth but with subtle, occasionally deadly differences…An enjoyable piece of work.” Publishers Weekly
“Niven has always been good at giving his worlds texture…Here, with the space operatics turned way down, we hear that, by God, the man really can sing.” Locus
“The pacing of his adventures is flawless, the science is rock-solid, and my disbelief was so suspended it could have been on Neptune.” San Diego Union-Tribune
“This realistic tale of power, deceit, adventure, and awakening by Hugo and Nebula Award winner Niven is highly recommended.” Library Journal
“A fascinating and skillfully detailed alien ecology, along with solid characters and some intriguing problems for them to tackle: Niven in top form.” Kirkus Reviews
