The most exciting SF debut of the last five years - a star to stand alongside Alistair Reynolds and Richard Morgan.
Hannu Rajaniemi is from Finland. He is 30 years old and has a PhD in string theory. He has lived, taught and worked in Edinburgh for the last seven years where he was a member of the high profile writing group that also included Hal Duncan and Alan Campbell.
A master thief, a spaceship pilot, her sentient spaceship, and a beleaguered detective make up the building blocks of this remarkable debut by a talented Finnish master of literary sf on a par with Gene Wolfe and Samuel R. Delaney. (LJ 3/15/11) (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
This is a sci-fi book to read; the world is pieced together masterfully and you get a detective/adventure story all in one. -- Linda Bloduedd * BOOK GIRL OF MUR-Y-CASTELL Blog *
