“A must for lovers of fantasy with strong sci-fi”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Christine Thomson
An engrossing story set in a well-developed world. The Brin and the Kolandi both felt very real for me. Both species’ complex struggles for survival and power – separately and intertwined – were thoughtfully crafted and deftly written. I am a true fantasy/sci-fi lover and I have a deep soft spot for richly imagined fantastic stories with a generous undercurrent of science. I enjoyed the story immensely and recommend to all other fantasy/sci-fi fans.
