"The song this novel sings is one that will be treasured by men and women who can still dream. A good read, yes, but I do not think the word exquisite is inappropriate. You will thank Monteleone for having taken you on this journey." —Harlan Ellison

"Tom Monteleone has drawn an eons-spanning tale... his hand never falters. The result is a precise, mordant, original and satisfying work by a strongly talented writer." —Roger Zelazny
