Editorial Reviews

"I have reviewed books before that I thought might someday be found to have achieved greatness.... But I am trying to be precise in my use of the word when I tell you that K.J. Parker is writing work after work that demands to be placed in that category. " --- Orson Scott Card on The Engineer trilogy"It's a dark, bleak and fiercely intelligent portrait of the human condition..." --- SFX on The Company"Imagine Lost meets The Italian Job...a masterfully planned and executed book, one that builds on ever-revealing characterization and back-story, leading slowly yet inexorably to its final conclusion." --- SFF World on The Company
