Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Robinson’s] novel is set thirty years in the future and imagines that the colony that’s been established on the moon is a hotbed of peril, power struggles, and crime—including murder.” i09
“Tackles another weighty theme: political rebellion. The subject is a familiar one in science fiction…but Robinson plays his own variations on the theme, turning what might have become a been-there-done-that retread into something fresh and exciting. Another stellar effort from one of the masters of the genre.” Booklist (starred review)
“A political thriller where the moon is a backdrop and game piece for both China and the United States, two powerful nations facing significant political and economic unrest…Fred Fredericks is the most intriguingly drawn character.” Kirkus Reviews
