‘Stunning, compulsive reading.’ 

Sunday Times

‘A whole world is created, perfectly real in itself, yet constituting a deep incidental comment on human affairs.’


‘Beautifully written and intensely moving... the work of an extraordinary imagination.’ 

Sunday Telegraph

‘Spellbinding... A taut tale of suspense, hot pursuit and derring-do.’ 

Chicago Tribune

‘A classic... A great book.’ 

Los Angeles Times

‘Quite marvelous... A powerful new vision of the great chain of being.’ 

New York Times Book Review

‘What a relief to read of characters who have honor and courage and dignity, who will risk their lives for others, whose love for their families and friends and community is enduring and effective.’
