Review by: James Jenkins on June 7, 2013 :
As a science fiction work I think it has room to improve. Many science facts are thrown about in the book, some are very real, others not so much.

The basic premise of the book, with leapfrog evolution is not new, but I have not seen it dealt with in this much detail before (good), but the science (fact and/or fiction) just did come together for me (bad).

I read about half the book before giving it up. It felt like the book was developing so that some deity or alien race was going to be behind the changes, I kept hoping for some non-magicaly theory be presented and supported. Add all the government conspiracy and just no point in going farther.

Great book! For me the Prologue is slooow and even the story is a wee bit slow but I was still quite interested even though I thought the beginning was sluggish. SUCH a great story! I'm definitely not an advocate of evolution, but I don't believe in dragons either and I love dragon stories so don't let the theme stop you! Wonderful "what if" book and such amazing insight into humanity's oft times idiocy.

Mr. Weber, if you wanted to do a Part Two, I'd actually BUY it! I will see what else you have listed and I definitely recommend this book.

Review by: Jeff Oaster on April 5, 2012 :
Really good book, and somewhat interestingly written - it opens with a prologue that covers about thirty pages before launching into the story proper. Stylistically, it reminded me of Stephen Baxter or maybe Robert Sawyer but was very enjoyable and well worth the price I paid for it. Oh wait, the book was free, so what are you waiting for?!?!

I could not put this book down. A really great book, everyone should read it. Take what you know and think 50-100 years in the future.

Review by: Garry Puffer on March 11, 2012 :
A nice companion piece to "Extinction," dealing with evolution. As in "Extinction," where some novel ideas aabout the dinosaurs were laid out, in "Transfiguration" the same is done with evolution. What if evolution isn't quite the way we've always assumed? What if the idea of a missing link is simply a red herring?
Mr. Weber knows how to tell a story. His characters stand out and the pacing is excellent. I thank him for providing these fine stories for free. I liked them so much that I purchased his third work, "Dragon's Blood," because I immediately wanted to read more from this creative author. And i don't even like books with dragons in them. Somehow I think Mr. Weber can make even dragons interesting for me.
