Shortlisted for the Kitschies Award
"A lightning bolt of a novel, with a sense of awe missing from a lot of current fiction."
"Starred Review. Naam turns in a stellar performance in his debut SF novel... What matters here is the remarkable scope and narrative power of the story."
"A gripping piece of near future speculation... all the grit and pace of the Bourne films."
"The most brilliant hard SF thriller I've read in years. Reminds me of Michael Crichton at his best."
"A rich cast of characters...the action scenes are crisp, the glimpses of future tech and culture are mesmerizing."
"Any old writer can take you on a roller coaster ride, but it takes a wizard like Ramez Naam to take you on the same ride while he builds the roller coaster a few feet in front of you."
"The only serious successor to Michael Crichton."
