  • "... a tour de force of topnotch characterization and thrilling adventure." Rave Reviews
  • "In the course of an often spine-tingling adventure, Bujold and her heroine deal with these crucial subjects: militarism, feminism, eugenics, and the dead hand of tradition, with a marvelous mixture of grace and cunning... This is SF fully equipped with brains, humor, and heart." Locus
  • "... Her best book yet. This is not faint praise; her last novel, The Vor Game, won the 1991 Hugo, and Falling Free won a Nebula in 1989... it's the swashbuckling that makes this story fun." Philadelphia Inquirer
