Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sharply observant family drama that, in the best traditions of SF, functions as entertainment, education, and social commentary.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Kress has adapted Yesterday’s Kin, her 2014 Nebula Award–winning novella into a trilogy and starts it off with a solid, riveting and fast-paced tale. The worldbuilding—mixing a contemporary New York City filled with protesters and human shortcomings with a sterile alien environment in the middle of the harbor—is a thing of beauty, even as humanity turns violent. Kress has nailed the foibles of all the characters; whether she’s channeling a middle-aged scientist or a five-year-old boy, the storytelling is believable. You may want to look up as you read, for this is a plausible first-contact tale.” RT Book Reviews (5 gold stars)
