Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Outstanding!…The best ever, by the best in the field…The ultimate combination of imagination and realism.” Tom Clancy
The Legacy of Heorot is well written, action packed, and tension filled…Makes Aliens look like a Disney nature film.” Washington Post
“Page-turning action and suspense, good characterization, and convincing setting…May be the best thing any of those authors has written.” Denver Post
“Spine-tingling ecological tale of terror…A story as relentless as the great white shark of Jaws.” Locus
“Entertaining…The novel is best in its sympathetic treatment of the once formidable scientists who wake from cold sleep with impaired mental powers.” Publishers Weekly
“Tom Weiner gives a splendid narration of this futuristic story in which a colony of humans makes a century-long space journey in suspended animation to the seemingly pristine planet of Avalon…He adroitly gives each of the characters individual voices and makes this a wonderful listening experience.” AudioFile
“The book’s tough realism and complex characters make the story seem frighteningly real; it reads much like a Stephen King horror novel.” School Library Journal
