"Brenda Clough has done it again, written a tight, suspenseful novel that is as exciting as it is thoughtful. Doors of Death and Life will keep you reading, not only for the action and gratifying depth of characterization, but for the questions it asks about the human capacity to heal or harm. This is a work as much about the complexities of friendship and familial love as it is an adventures. Clough tells a satisfying story indeed." --Catherine Asaro
