PRESS REVIEWS (extracts)

There is poetry in this subtly charming SF novel. And it is in this singularity of atmosphere, tone and literary ambition that the beauty of this novel of restrained violence unfolds, illuminated in the end by a love story with timeless overtones. TÉLÉRAMA
We devour the pages at breakneck speed, so engrossed are we in the game alongside the complex protagonists, in a most atypical journey that we can only recommend. NEWS
Thrilling, breathtaking, worthy of the best science fiction novels. LIBRAIRIE ATOUT LIVRE
This book has all the hallmarks of the best Planet Opera novels (...) A worthy heir to Bradbury, Orwell and the others. CULTURA BRIVE
A little gem that appeals to our intelligence. None of the characters is archetypal, nothing follows a predictable pattern, everything rings true, possible, true. YOZONE
Our favourite! A tragic dance that raises many topical issues. L'OUVR'ÂGE
This novel is not lacking in ambition. It denies itself nothing, doesn't take young people for idiots and takes the trouble to build a rich universe with characters and a narrative to match. PHEBUSA
