"A well-crafted chapter in the Gears's ongoing series." --Kirkus Reviews on People of the Black Sun"Sure to keep readers turning the pages... As usual, the Gears, husband-and-wife archaeologists, have enriched and enhanced the gripping plot with plenty of anthropological, archaeological, and historical detail." --Booklist on The Dawn Country
