Product description

Review

Roberts supplies convincing details - his characters are flawed, cranky and driven. At times, this is reminiscent of Robert Heinlein at his best. (Lisa Tuttle THE TIMES)

The author manages to deflect attention from most of the improbabilities and include an occasional anti-consumerist message, while developing his own language, spelling and finally - and most riskily - letters. Classic Roberts. (Jon Courtenay Grimwood THE GUARDIAN)

Roberts¿ use of Scandinavian legend as an allegory to the magnetic boost technologies he uses to put planes into orbit has the smack of an SF trope that¿ll become a universal cliché in a few years. (STARBURST)

"Against the backdrop of Gradisil's nation-building odyssey, Roberts impressively explores a variety of themes. It all adds up to proof, if any were really needed, that Roberts belongs in the first rank of hard SF writers." (SFX)

This is Roberts¿ best novel to date, and quite conceivably a harbinger of greatness. (Nick Gevers LOCUS)

"A well measured political science fiction novel with a darkly realistic tone throughout. The fact that the Gyeroffy family remains so flawed and yet so credible throughout is testament not just to good science fiction, but good writing in general." (DREAMWATCH)

A thought provoking read. (BBC FOCUS)
