Reviews

There's an Ursula Le Guin-like grace to [Tchaikovsky's] storytelling, to the shifting of cadences. Everything about this book suggests deliberate care in uniting epic fantasy's immersive world-building with the sharp, dislocating bursts of high-concept science fiction... Ten out of 10. --New York Times

[An] epic tale of a land ruled by magic--or the sober record of a world colonized by science...The double vision built into the story works well. --Wall Street Journal

[A] seamless blend of science fiction and fantasy... Recommended for lovers of portal fantasy, lost colony science fiction, and stories on the border between the two genres --Library Journal

Tchaikovsky takes beloved tropes to exciting new places, carried by memorable characters and clever prose. This proves yet again why Tchaikovsky is a master of the genre mash-up." --Publishers Weekly

Elder Race is a really fun novella, displaying Tchaikovsky's trademark sharp prose and big ideas conveyed in interesting ways. --GrimDark Magazine


More Praise for Adrian Tchaikovsky

Picking up an Adrian Tchaikovsky book is proof you love your brain and want it to be happy. --John Scalzi

"A great coming-of-age story that careens through a world so vividly realized that you can feel each insect bite and taste every acrid berry. The Expert System's Brother gives you that visceral eek of satisfaction as its pieces come into view then fit together with exacting precision. It's a smart story, smartly told." - Hugo Award winner, John Chu

"I loved it. A bold, vivid story about humanity and the broader universe. Should we mold the universe to suit us? Or should we mold ourselves to suit the universe? Adrian Tchaikovsky keeps these choices in tension, and kept me riveted to the page." - Ramez Naam, author of Nexus on The Expert System's Brother

"Children of Time is a joy from start to finish. Entertaining, smart, surprising and unexpectedly human." - Patrick Ness

"Brilliant science fiction and far out world building" - James McAvoy on Children of Time

"A refreshingly new take on post-dystopia civilizations, with the smartest evolutionary worldbuilding you'll ever read" - Peter F. Hamilton on Children of Time

"A magnificently imaginative space opera." - B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog on Children of Time
