"Bradley moves quickly through the lives of his protagonists, sketching their stories during key moments in the unfolding narrative. But the real story here is the all-too-realistic vision of an ecosystem in the throes of collapse, portrayed in stunning, sobering detail." --Booklist "a stunningly beautiful novel, characterized as much by lyricism as pointed critique of how humans are stewarding the planet." --Chicago Review of Books "Novels like Clade provide the lens we need to see our way forward." --Locus "entertaining, insightful, and all around a great book" --Gamers Sphere Barnes & Noble SFF blog: "haunting, strangely optimistic" "Bradley's ability to find poetry amid brutal circumstances, his focus on the undeniably human problems of his cast, and a hopeful message of survival make Clade a melancholic celebration of humanity, not an elegy" "Bradley's novel is absorbing and depressing, as it is thoughtful and fascinating"
