...entertaining and thought-provoking ...I enjoyed it immensely... an interesting blend of speculative fiction and thriller.
Julie Ann Dawson, Gloomwing
RealmShift has a strong foundation in an unusually coherent fantasy cosmology... This is a substantial dark fantasy novel written in clear, effective prose... seamlessly constructed with a plot that picks up speed slowly but then barrels towards its conclusion... Baxter shows glimmers of unusual talent in his world building and prose style.
Ed Kane, POD People
A fast-paced storyline that holds the reader right from the start ... nifty devices galore, from RealmShift to the Balance ... and a no-nonsense story-telling approach that lets the unfolding action speak for itself.
Van Ikin, editor ‘Science Fiction’
... always on the move it explores an interesting mix of mythologies... a rich novel.
