  • Superb

    A work bordering on perfection like this perhaps should be enjoyed drop by drop. But no, I swigged the whole thing down at once. It's really a beautiful story, with the author's usual careful weaving of emotions.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • hello Bees hello hello

    I really liked this book. From the dawning sense that things are very much not as they appear over the first chapter to the conversations between lawyers and bioforms, it's beautifully observed and worryingly plausible in ways. I'm a long-time fan of Adrian's, and this book did not disappoint. I'd like an hour or three to chat with Bees. She seems ... fascinating :)

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • I did not expect it to be so moving.

    This isn't a book about bioform assault packs. It's a book about slavery, capitalism, emerging intelligence and the right of all sentient life to choose. Thought it was going to be a fun holiday read... Didn't expect to almost cry at the start AND the end. Good book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Timely, exciting and thought proving

    I've read a few of Adrian's books and this is another example of excellent story telling and a thought provoking glimpse into a possible future.

  • The future of Good Dogs?

    A highly plausible, terrifying story of near future war. Like all great sci-fi, this book shows us the possible ramifications of man meddling with science and nature. Tchaikovsky writes great characters, and he's even able to do this when the characters are not human; in this case it's dogs and bears and alligators, etc. All up this is a searing, high tech critique of how far man could go on the quest for power.

    Thanks for your feedback!
