Critic reviews

"Fans of games, logic problems, and mental conundrums will appreciate the plot permutations that highlight the adventures of four feisty heroes in this sf/fantasy blend." (Library Journal)

Unnecessary

An unnecessary book for what is a brilliant series. Unfortunately it reads like padding, as if Piers had a word count to get too. Half the book is just more of Book 4 and you do get fed up with endless sex that adds nothing to the story. It is by far the weakest book in the series.

Eager for more

Another excellent novel well read by a talented narrator, only a full cast has any hope of bettering it. I can't possibly wait for next month's credit, the situation in the twin frames continues to build with equal parts anticipation and concern.

A little twisty

This tone seemed a little desperate at time...to keep the frames & generations going but ended up enjoyable in the long run.

Robot and Human

Who would have thought, only a great story teller, who has a wonderful mind for twists, either robot or human. Wonderful.

Terrible story failed attempt at a sci fi romance

Doesnt really move the story anywhere. Lots of sex that all to often comes off as more naseating then anything else
