Reviews

"Brilliant science fiction and far out world building"--James McAvoy

"Children of Time is a joy from start to finish. Entertaining, smart, surprising and unexpectedly human."--Patrick Ness

"A refreshingly new take on post-dystopia civilizations, with the smartest evolutionary worldbuilding you'll ever read"
--Peter F Hamilton
"Like a Stephen Baxter novel with an epic sweep of history (see his Evolution, for example), added to a broad cast of a Peter Hamilton Space Opera and the narrative drive of, say, a David Brin or a Greg Bear old style SF novel, Children of Time soon got me hooked."--SFF World

"Children of Time has that essence of the classic science fiction novels, that sense of wonder and unfettered imagination but combined with this is the charm of a writer who really knows how to entertain, how to spin a good story. Essential science fiction, a book not to be missed."
--SF Book
"The novel's clever interrogation of the usual narrative of planetary conquest, and its thoughtful depiction of two alien civilisations attempting to understand each other, is an exemplar of classic widescreen science fiction."--New Scientist
"This is superior stuff, tackling big themes - gods, messiahs, artificial intelligence, alienness - with brio."--Financial Times
"An entertaining and thought provoking novel of post humanity, survival and legacy."--SF Signal
"Tchaikovsky's prose is superb, and his world-building was exceptional, brilliantly realized on the page, and both fascinating and original."--Civilian Reader
"A magnificently imaginative space opera."--B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
