“A surprising, haunting, poetic book . . . full of provocative philosophical and psychological questions as well as tense adventure and romance.” —Commonweal

“Gripping psychological science fiction . . . the relationship between the heroine and her sophisticated, unbrutish interrogator is beautifully balanced and adds another dimension to a story which is already multi-faceted.” —Times Literary Supplement, London

“The author has a direct, forceful style of writing that sparks the reader’s imagination.” —Publisher’s Weekly

“Engdahl’s faith in the importance of space exploration and the questions she poses about the nature of ‘progress’ and the dangers of well-intentioned intervention will amply reward the careful reader.” —Terri Schmitz, Horn Book

“Fiction doesn’t have to be profound, just entertaining. But every once in a long while, a novel comes along that is both. . . . [It] speak[s] to the very place of humanity in the universe, and what we need to do to attain and claim it. In an age in which terrorism has threatened our ways of life in unexpected ways, Engdahl’s probing story, and the recommendation it contains, are especially relevant.” —Paul Levinson
