"[A] cerebral thriller…. [Jensen’s] denouement is eerie and foreboding, leaving unanswered as many questions as it addresses."Publishers Weekly(starred review)

“Gripping…. Jensen weaves an eerie, haunting narrative, told in Hesketh’s singular voice, building an unsettling tension as it moves toward a chilling finish.” —Booklist

“[A] compelling apocalyptic literary thriller…. An intricate, intelligent, nightmarish eco-prophecy delivered in pacey fictional form.”—Kirkus Reviews

"In the course of eight inventive, provocative novels, Jensen has carved out a fictional space dense with elements of fantasy and thriller, satire and SF, science and cod-science, but entirely her own. The mainstream is moving towards her, rather than the other way around."—Guardian (UK)

"Expertly paced and pitched, combining moments of chilling horror with deadpan comedy, this audacious novel is utterly gripping."—Daily Mail (UK)
