Exuberant... suspense filled... delightful... I couldn't put it down. - INTERZONE

The Uplift books are as compulsive reading as anything ever published in the genre. - John Clute, THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SCIENCE FICTION

BRIGHTNESS REEF is multi-layered, tightly plotted and... excellently written. - SFX
