What the Critics Say

"I am struck by the clever combination of science and plausible science fiction, and am impressed with the sensitivity and obvious love for Alaska and its Native people that pours through the pages." (Glenn E. Shaw, Professor of Physics, University of Alaska Fairbanks)

Well meaning but dull

Sadly the author is so determined to sing the praises of Alaska that the characters are all so idealised that they have no intersting or engaging aspects at all. The concept is interesting but the story lacks any drama as there is essentially no conflict within the tale. Science-fiction at its least enthralling. A great disappointment.
