A fantastic blend of worldbuilding, excellent storytelling and complex characters.
"Swift has produced another beautifully-written novel." -- Civilian Reader "Cataveiro has a soulful, lonely quality as Taeo and Ramona embark on their missions, haunted by memories of the past and visions of what lies ahead ... an intriguing world to get lost in." SciFi Now "A fantastic blend of worldbuilding, excellent storytelling and complex characters." -- John DeNardo SF Signal "Swift's first novel, with its brilliant near-future vision of an ecologically and socially devastated world and characters who resonate with life and passion, marks her as an author to watch." -- Jackie Cassada Library Journal "A glittering first novel: a kind of flooded Gormenghast treated with the alienated polish of DeLillo's Cosmopolis. The result is a gripping novel, readable, beautiful, politically engaged and wholly accomplished. Swift is a ridiculously talented writer." Adam Roberts
