"Harvey paints a grimly convincing portrait of a subsistence existence on the inhospitable world. Harvey's... novel depicts a fascinating universe of want and plenitude, to which he will hopefully return in future novels." - Eric Brown, The Guardian
"This is tough, traditional science fiction with plenty of “Hard SF” and world-building, intriguingly leavened by the spirit of the Norse myths that runs through it. Good entertainment by a thinking writer." - The Morning Star
"[Colin Harvey] deserves a place on your shelf along with Asher, Reynolds, Hamilton and Stross." - Deadwood Reviews
