Review quote

"Sure to captivate more subjects for one of the reigning queens of science fiction." --Publishers Weekly on World's End

"Vinge weaves a complex web of tangled love affairs, secret cabals, political intrigue, and high adventure centering around a unique woman and her visionary gift. The breadth and richness of [The Summer Queen] invite comparison with Frank Herbert's Dune and Isaac Asimov's Foundation Trilogy. A masterpiece of world-building." --Library Journal (starred) on The Summer Queen
