An intelligent, slow-burning, love story with rewards along the way * Starburst * The imagination behind her galaxy and its variation of the human race cannot be faulted * Sci-Fi Now magazine * The kind of novel that truly illustrates what science fiction is capable of doing. Lush and yet not overwhelming, it is a love story firmly rooted in a story of humanity told with alien cultures * Best Fantasy Stories * A sweet and gentle and sorrowful novel, written with warmth and wit and wonder . . . sumptuous * Speculative Scotsman * A real delight to read * Fantasy Book Critic * The author is clearly a class apart, and doubly so in terms of her prose . . . Utterly astonishing * Tor.com * A rewarding, touching and often funny exploration of the forms and functions of human culture. Plus, it has flying monks - a universally improving ingredient! * SFX * An episodic quest with a Caribbean-flavoured mix of societies * Sunday Telegraph * An engrossing picaresque quest, a love story, and a moving character study of two very different people coming to understand themselves . . . Lord is on a par with Ursula K Le Guin * Guardian * Karen Lord's second novel carries deliberate echoes of Ray Bradbury's classic Mars colonisation stories. It's refined, meditative and life-affirming, and its exploration of gender politics and ethnology confirms Lord as the natural heiress to Octavia Butler and Ursula Le Guin * Financial Times *
