A gut-punching novel, consistently taut and bleak. Readers will feel Lucy hanging on by her fingernails just beneath the human world and bloodied by every hard climb upward.”
A fiercely original premise carried to a logical and thought-provoking conclusion. . . . this unforgettable novel is sure to haunt readers long after they’ve turned the last page. Highly recommended.”
Ward's prose is expressive and often unexpectedly beautiful. . .High-caliber, often engrossing literary sci-fi.”
A masterly written slowburner... Skinner Luce is a dark and beautiful dystopian hallucination that will keep you simultaneously cringing and wanting more. Lucy glows like an ember of rage and strength in search of personal liberation and redemption.”
Seb Doubinsky, author of Song of Synth and Goodbye Babylon
"Skinner Luce paints a heroine who's more human than most in her fears and ambitions and who will grab your heart. This book will haunt you long after you put it down."
Omnivoracious, "The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of January"
A darkly clever concept with an oppressive atmosphere that never lets up.”
Kit Whitfield, author of Benighted and In Great Waters

On a much more positive note, I heard faint echoes of Le Guin's work while making my way through Lucy's story. This novel is certainly worth your time.
