Roth has pulled off a virtuoso performance, conjuring a stunning thriller/fantasy/sci-fi chimera like nothing I've read before, a story of ex-heroes struggling with the trauma of their past, what it means to have once saved the world, and the dark side of destiny - Blake Crouch, bestselling author of DARK MATTER and RECURSIONRoth somehow manages to make universe-building look easy. She sets it all up - world, characters, premise - so smoothly that you hardly notice until you're a hundred pages in and hurtling down the tracks. An insightful exploration of desire and ambition that also touches on broader societal topics, including celebrity, social media, trauma and recovery - Charles Yu, bestselling author of INTERIOR CHINATOWN
