Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Rapid pacing and gripping suspense.” Publishers Weekly
“Asaro’s Skolian saga is now nearly as long and in many ways as compelling as Dune, if not more so, featuring a multitude of stronger female characters.” Booklist
“Once the action really starts, the book is impossible to put down.” VOYA
“Asaro’s portrait of interstellar intrigue, weird socio-political customs and galactic history has come to approach the neighborhood of such classics as Frank Herbert’s Dune series.” SciFi.com
“A satisfying conclusion to the Triad story arc.” RT Book Reviews
