Review quote

"Readers nostalgic for the juvenile SF novels of Robert A. Heinlein and Andre Norton will find much to enjoy...Turtledove presents his teenaged heroes with a series of moral choices and dilemmas that will particularly resonate with younger fans. This is a rousing story that reminds us that 'adventure' is really someone else in deep trouble a long way off."
--"Publishers Weekly" on "Gunpowder Empire"
"Turtledove has proved he can divert his readers to astonishing places...I know I'd follow his imagination almost anywhere." --"San Jose Mercury News"
"One of alternate history's authentic modern masters." --"Booklist"
"Harry Turtledove is probably the best practitioner of the classic alternate-history story since L. Sprague de Camp." --"Locus"
