Product description

Review

This is space opera on a vast scale, backed up by Baxter's customary impressive research as he seamlessly weaves planetary exploration, genome reconstruction, climate change, artifi cial intelligence and much more into the compulsively readable narrative. The opening volume of a projected series, it's Baxter at his very best., GUARDIAN

It's another triumph for Baxter. A page turner that not only fascinates on an intellectual level, but on a science fiction thriller level too., SCIFINOW MAGAZINE

You can rely on Stephen Baxter to come up with solid science fiction that does everything you'd expect a bit of classic sci-fi to do., STARBURST MAGAZINE

Hard SF science smarts... yet is great fun too., SFX MAGAZINE --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

gripping science fiction utilising big concepts and backed by brilliant writing - Starburst Magazine

Grown up SF, a masterpiece from a star who shines as bright as any "mainstream" author - Sun

Baxter is the natural heir to the hard sci-fi crown of Arthur C. Clarke and he shares Clarke's generous imagination and ability to extrapolate a plausible future technology from the cutting-edge theories of today. Imaginative appeal is what counts with Baxter and in that he delivers reliably - Daily Telegraph --This text refers to the paperback edition.
