Turner manages to infuse Hardy's 'modern ache' into a futuristic world with subtlety and imagination. The setting of the book, although distant, frames the themes of power, family and exile in such a way that all will be able to relate. A thoroughly good read and well worth a full download. Five stars.
What a great book! A must read if you have read Turner's 'Strange Reunion'- and even if you haven't! Turner brings to life her futuristic society and there is never a dull moment. Well worth a read- five out of five.
