Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Asaro, who’s a physicist, offers an intelligent exploration of possible links between telepathy and quantum physics and informs many of the scenes between the lovers with power and tenderness.” Publishers Weekly
“Once again, Fields brings her formidable narration skills to a story of adventure and political intrigue…Fields creates clear pictures of a variety of characters with a range of motives, including ‘bionic’ humans and computers whose artificial intelligence gives them more personality than some of the people.” AudioFile
“In this sensual tale of telepathy and love between Mayan descendants of different worlds and times, Asaro continues to develop the Skolian culture. Recommended.” Library Journal
