Atwood is ascendant, from her resilient characters to the feverishly suspenseful plot.... The coruscating finale is an ingenious, cautionary trilogy of hubris, fortitude, wisdom, love, and life''s grand obstinacy."  Booklist (STARRED REVIEW) "Unpredictably chilling and hilarious.... The novel holds a shrewd mirror to our possible future." Bookseller  “Weaving adventure, romance, imagination, wit, and incredible world-building, Atwood has created a terrifying future and a compelling end to her tale.” Zoomer
