'With the second novel in the Dakota Merrick trilogy, Gibson stakes his claim to be considered alongside the leading triumvirate of British hard SF writers: Al Reynolds, Peter Hamilton, and Neal Asher. What Gibson does well, he does exceedingly well. ' --Guardian
'A sharp, sophisticated and hugely entertaining SF novel.' --SFX
'The inventiveness and sense of wonder are raised a notch and the novel is a page turner you do not want to put down... In the top class of the field alongside PF Hamilton or Iain M. Banks.' --Fantasy Book Critic
'For an enthralling widescreen space opera with characters and aliens that are both interesting and engrossing this is the books to read. Very highly recommended.'
--Walker of Worlds
