"Gedge has fashioned a remarkable blend of gripping entertainment and haunting ideas that linger long after the book has been put down." --Globe and Mail "Stargate , which goes back to the theological beginnings of the world, is ambitious and serious fantasy, a vivid portrait of rich civilizations and their fall from the heavenly kingdom." --Richmond Times-Dispatch "It is no easy feat to write a creation story, even one which is set in an alien universe, [but] novelist Gedge takes up these challenges in this, her third book - and ... pulls off a clear winner." --Edmonton Journal "As a describer of a fantasy world, Gedge must have few peers.Her word pictures of her strange planets enable us to visualize them easily and to believe in their existence." --Victoria Times Colonist
