Reviews

The first men and women to colonize Mars bring to their awesome task not only their unique skills but also their private hopes, ambitions, and fears. As the demands of the red planet are met and overcome, differences of opinion and struggles for leadership threaten to erupt into open warfare. This first volume in a trilogy by the author of Pacific Edge (Tor, 1990) elicits a sense of drama from the dynamic interplay of diverse characters as well as from the risks involved in creating a human habitat in an inhuman land. Generously blending hard science with canny insight into human strengths and weaknesses, this suspenseful sf saga should appeal to a wide range of readers. Highly recommended.

"A staggering book . . . the best novel on the colonization of Mars that has ever been written."--Arthur C. Clarke

"Absorbing . . . a scientifically informed imagination of rare ambition at work."--The New York Times Book Review "Tremendous . . . a high-water mark in novels of Earth emigration."--The Washington Post Book World
