Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Nothing ever goes the way I plan, laments Otah, long-suffering emperor of the Khaiem, concisely summarizing Abraham's melancholy and near-perfect conclusion to the Long Price Quartet. Fifteen years after the disaster that led to the sterilization of all Khaiem women and Galtish men in 2008's An Autumn War, Otah seeks an alliance between the two long-warring nations in hopes of there being a next generation, while former poet Maati tries to teach young women to summon andat, beings that embody and control concepts. Maati's student Vanjit harnesses the andat Clarity-of-Sight, but war trauma transforms her from possible savior into deranged dictator. Abraham shies away from the blood and swashbuckling of the previous novels, instead telling a tale of forgiveness and catharsis that concludes this complex saga with mixed notes of sadness and hope.

From Bookmarks Magazine

Reviewers of science fiction and fantasy novels tend to respect authors who wrap up a series neatly rather than spinning out endless sequels. But they also demand good endings, which may be why expectations for Abraham's The Price of Spring were so high. The book generally met them; critics were pleased to see that Abraham could settle all the questions raised in the earlier novels without losing any of his innovative edge. Several reviewers felt that The Price of Spring was the best book in the series; Jo Walton (in an independent review on Tor.com, a Web site run by the book's publisher) wrote that it is "the fastest moving and most exciting of all the volumes."
