Not one of Preston's best but he's a very good writer, even one of his "okay" efforts is entertaining and will keep you reading until the end

Simply not up to par with his previous novel 'Blasphemy.' Elementary and uninteresting with a dud of a conclusion. Surprisingly disappointing from an author with such a solid track record.

not as good as the others, but still a good read.

Written for teen-agers with no real sci-fi meat.
