"It's books like Hearts of Oak, stories that instil a sense of wonder, a thrill for the strange and the outlandish, that brought many of us to the genre in the first place. I loved it, and so will you." --Locus

"Strange, charming, unpredictable, and full of unusual images, this is an off-the-wall delight."--Kirkus Reviews

"Twists and surprises abound in this engaging sf adventure. A mesmerizing look at facing reality and what you believe to be true. Robson's characters are well-rounded and themes of exploration and expansion undergird the playful prose."--Library Journal Starred Review

"Entertaining and quite satisfying."--Booklist

"Clever, emotional, and thematically rich, this is sure to please fans of classic science fiction."--Publishers Weekly
