"A fine combination of love story, social commentary, and ecothriller closes a terrific series with a bang."[Starred Review] "Some of the most outrageous, stimulating speculation since Robert A. Heinlein''s Stranger in a Strange Land questioned our tired, timid conventions." "Sawyer fashions a consistent, engaging, logical history and society for his Neanderthals. . . . All in all, it''s an anthropological creation worthy of Le Guin."
