From Reviews of

Promise of the Flame


“Engdahl’s gift is to make her characters seem comfortable and familiar to the reader, even though their circumstances are not. . . . The ideas and futuristic possibilities are disturbingly real and will remain with the reader long after they’ve finished the book.” —IndieReader Staff Review


“As with all of Engdahl’s work, science-fiction fans will recognize the tropes she uses, but it is not just ‘for’ them. . . . Engdahl has produced high-quality work over a forty-year period, but this is one of her finest achievements.” —Nicholas Birns (author of Understanding Anthony Powell)
