Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Kress brings her Beggars trilogy to a powerful close…The scale of Kress’ vision is large as she lays out a drama that—convincingly if unsurprisingly—argues that moral quandaries can’t be addressed by technology.” Publishers Weekly
“Kress shows us the pitfalls in a world dependent on medical technology and the consequences for humans. Highly recommended for SF collections.” Library Journal
“Masterful…Kress continues in the same tradition of terrific storytelling.” School Library Journal
